CANADIAN TRANSPORT COMMISSION 

DECISION OF ITS RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 
IN RE THE BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY OF CANADA 

File: C.955.176 
January 23, 1968 

Under the Railway Act of Canada, the Canadian Transport Commission has the 
duty to maintain continuing surveillance over the affairs of The Bell Telephone Company 
to ensure that telephone rates are just and reasonable and are free from unjust discrimina- 
tion or undue preference. 

In the fulfilment of this duty, the Commission's predecessor, the Board of 
Transport Commissioners for Canada, issued a Judgment in May 1966 after a thorough 
and careful review of the financial structure of Bell Telephone under the circumstances 
and conditions prevailing at that time. 

In measuring the justness and reasonableness of The Bell Telephone rate structure, 
the Board of Transport Commissioners in that Judgment used as a yardstick a permissive 
level of earnings on the company's total average capitalization ranging from 6.2% to 
6.6%. 

In December 1967, as part of the normal exercise of its duties, the Railway 
Transport Committee of the Commission requested and received from Bell Telephone 
estimates of its earnings for the calendar year 1967 and for the first six months of 1968. 
These estimates indicate that the Company's present rate structure will produce during 
this period earnings within the range of 6.7% to 6.8%. This level would be more than 
that permitted by the Judgment of the Board of Transport Commissioners of May 
1966. Accordingly, the Railway Transport Committee directed Bell Telephone to say 
whether, in the light of the estimated level of earnings and the Judgment of the Board 
of Transport Commissioners, it had proposals for any reductions in telephone rates, 
taking into account the circumstances and conditions prevailing at the present time. 

Bell Telephone has advised the Railway Transport Committee that it does not 
have any proposals for rate reductions. The Company has drawn to the attention of 
the Committee the very sharp rise in interest rates which has occurred since May 1966 
resulting in a substantial increase in its embedded cost of debt capital. Bell Telephone 
has represented to the Railway Transport Committee that in the face of this very 

58 R.T.C.

JANUARY 1968 



substantial increase in its cost of money, and the accelerated demand for service with a 
consequent increase in its construction and labour costs, it should not be expected to 
implement any reduction in its telephone rates. 

The Railway Transport Committee has made its own independent study of the 
matter and has decided that, at this time, there has been such a change in the circum- 
stances and conditions that prevailed in May 1966 when the Judgment of the Board of 
Transport Commissioners was issued that Bell Telephone should not be required to 
reduce its telephone rates. Accordingly the Committee will not order Bell Telephone to 
reduce its rates. 

Under the powers given to it by the Railway Act, the Committee has undertaken 
a review upon its own motion and will issue in the near future its Review Judgment 
relative to the findings contained in the earlier Judgment of 1966. 

Issued at Ottawa, January 23, 1968 at 3.30 p.m., by direction of the Railway 
Transport Committee.

COMMISSION CANADIENNE DES TRANSPORTS 

DECISION DE SON COMITE DES TRANSPORTS PAR CHEMIN DE FER 
CONCERNANT LA COMPAGNIE DE TfeLfiPHONE BELL DU CANADA 

Dossier: C.955.176 
le 23 fanvier 1968 

En vertu de la Loi sur les chemins de fer, il appartient a la Commission canadienne 
des transports d'exercer une surveillance continuelle sur l'activite de la Compagnie 
de telephone Bell afln de s'assurer que les taux telephoniques sont justes et raisonnables 
et ne font l'objet d'aucune disparite ou preference injuste. 

A cet egard, le predecesseur de la Commission, la Commission des transports du 
Canada, a publie un jugement en mai 1966, a la suite d'une etude attentive et approfondie 
de la structure flnanciere de la Compagnie de telephone Bell, compte tenu des circons- 
tances et de la situation d'alors. 

Dans ce jugement, la Commission des transports du Canada s'est servie, comme 
bareme, pour juger du caractere equitable et raisonnable de la structure tarifaire de la 
Compagnie de telephone Bell, d'un niveau autorise de benefices allant de 6.2 p. 100 
a 6.6 p. 100 de la totalite de la capitalisation moyenne de cette compagnie. 

En decembre 1967, le Comite des transports par chemin de fer de la Commission 
a, dans l'exercice normal de ses fonctions, demande a la Compagnie de telephone Bell, 
et recu d'elle, des etats estimatifs de ses benefices pour l'annee civile 1967 et pour les 
six premiers mois de 1968. Ces etats estimatifs revelent que la structure tarifaire actuelle 
de la Compagnie lui procurera pendant cette periode des benefices variant entre 6.7% 
et 6.8%, niveau superieur au niveau autorise par le jugement de mai 1966 de la 
Commisison des transports du Canada. En consequence, le Comite des transports par 
chemin de fer a enjoint a la Compagnie de telephone Bell de lui preciser si, vu le 
niveau prevu des benefices et le jugement de la Commission des transports du Canada, 
elle projetait une reduction des taux telephoniques, compte tenu des circonstances 
et de la situation actuelles. 

La Compagnie de telephone Bell a informe le Comite des transports par chemin 
de fer qu'elle ne projetait aucune reduction de taux. Elle a attire l'attention du Comite 
sur la tres forte augmentation des taux d'interet qui s'est produite depuis mai 1966, 
et qui a eu pour effet d'augmenter dans des proportions importantes le cout du capital 
emprunte. Elle a laisse entendre au Comite qu'en raison de cette augmentation consi- 
derable du cout de l'argent qu'elle emprunte, de la demande accrue de services et de 
l'augmentation du cout de la main-d'oeuvre et de la construction qui en resulte, on 
ne pouvait s'attendre a ce qu'elle reduise ses taux telephoniques.

Le Comite des transports par chemin de fer a, de son cote, etudie la question et a 
decide qu'en raison de tous les changements de circonstances et de situation qui se sont 
produits depuis que la Commission des transports avait rendu son jugement en mai 1966, 
on ne peut demander a la Compagnie Bell de reduire ses taux telephoniques. En conse- 
quence, le Comite n'ordonnera pas a la Compagnie Bell de reduire ses taux telephoniques. 

En vertu des pouvoirs qui lui sont conferes par la Loi sur les chemins de fer, le 
Comite a entrepris d'etudier la question, de sa propre initiative, et il publiera prochaine- 
ment un jugement revise relativement aux conclusions contenues dans le jugement de 
1966.

CANADIAN TRANSPORT COMMISSION 

IN THE MATTER OF the Application of Canadian National Railway Company, 
Telecommunications Department, and Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Telecommu- 
nications Department, dated February 22, 1967, under the provisions of Section 380(12) 
of the Railway Act, for approval of a Memorandum of Agreement between the said 
companies providing for the reciprocal abandonment of telegraph offices. 

File 10041.177 
January 24, 1968 

JUDGMENT 

BY ITS RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE: 

On February 22, 1967, the Canadian National Railway Company, Telecommuni- 
cations Department, and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Telecommunications 
Department, made a joint application, under the provisions of Section 380(12) of the 
Railway Act, for approval of a proposed Memorandum of Agreement between the two 
companies, providing for the reciprocal abandonment of telegraph offices in areas where 
the volume of business does not justify the retention of offices by both companies. 

The reasons advanced in justification of the proposed Memorandum of Agreement 
are set out in the preamble thereto. They include a steady decline in the volume of 
telegraph message traffic consequent upon improvements and diversification in communi- 
cation facilities generally, a decline which approximated 5.0% per annum between 1956 
and 1966 and which has increased somewhat since 1956; and the fact that the establish- 
ment of some twenty joint telegraph offices throughout Canada has not proved entirely 
satisfactory and has, moreover, precluded the full achievement of all possible economies 
because of the retention of dual facilities. 

In the light of this experience, both companies now consider that the public 
interest and the provision of a more effective and efficient telegraph service would be 
better served by the development of areas of operation exclusive to each company, rather 
than by continued competition for a declining volume of message traffic. Under such a 
policy, each company's services and facilities would be interconnected and complement- 
ary; there would be no increase whatever in the cost of telegraph messages to the public, 
as a result of the policy ; and there would be no deterioration in the level of telegraph 
service to be furnished.

JANUARY 1968 



As a basis for the withdrawal of service by one company in favour of an exclusive 
service by the other company, the proposed Memorandum of Agreement sets out ten 
detailed principles which may be summarized as embracing the following considerations: 
(a) reciprocal withdrawals are to be based upon an equalization of gross revenues from 
commercial telegraph offices and neither company is to increase its share of such gross 
revenues at the expense of the other company; (b) plant layout is to be a factor to be 
considered; and (c) both companies are to adopt an identical policy with respect to 
those employees affected by the reciprocal withdrawal program. 

Although Appendix "A" to the proposed Memorandum of Agreement lists 51 
telegraph offices, to which the companies have agreed the reciprocal withdrawal plan will 
apply, Appendix "A" also provides that such list may be amended from time to time. 

Submissions with respect to the companies' application were received from the 
General Chairmen of the Commercial Telegraphers' Union, (C.N.T. Division 43 and 
C.P.R. Division 1), under date of June 2, 1967. The Union took the position that 
approval of the Memorandum of Agreement, if given, should apply to no more than 
sixteen specific locations at which it asserted the telegraph offices were scheduled for 
immediate abandonment, and further that no closings of telegraph offices should be 
permitted until negotiations had been completed in respect of the employees affected. 

Subsequent to the submissions of the Union, an agreement was entered into 
between the companies and the Union, dated October 2, 1967, providing for "conditions 
to minimize the adverse effects upon employees involved in the reciprocal withdrawal of 
services, pursuant to the provisions of Article VII of the Master Agreement of March 14, 
1967." As a result, the Railway Transport Committee wrote to the Union on October 17, 
1967 and advised the General Chairmen that, on the basis of what was before the 
Committee, it appeared that the Committee was now in a position to deal with the 
companies' joint application of February 22, 1967 without the necessity of a public 
hearing. The Committee asked the Union whether or not it concurred in such a view and 
the Union advised the Committee on November 16, 1967 that, in view of the Agreement 
of October 2, 1967, it did not intend to appear before the Committee at a public hearing. 

The probable adverse effects of the companies' proposed plan upon its employees 
were also dealt with in a number of submissions received from other parties, but in view 
of the Agreement of October 2, 1967 it appears unnecessary to recite them here. 

Submissions were also received objecting to the proposed closing of telegraph 
offices at eight locations, generally on the grounds that telegraph service would be 
curtailed or eliminated entirely. As indicated above, however, the proposed reciprocal 
abandonment plan does not contemplate either a curtailment or an elimination of 
telegraph service, but rather the provision of full service by a single company within 
agreed-upon areas of exclusive operation. 

Initially, in dealing with submissions which were received in opposition to the 
companies' application of February 22, 1967, we indicated our intention to hold a public 

58 R.T.C. 



-6- 



PAMPHLET NO. 2 



JANUARY 1968 



hearing with respect to this matter. In view of the agreement which has been reached 
between the companies and the Union, and because the companies' proposal will not 
adversely affect either charges or service to the public, we no longer consider that the 
time and expense of a public hearing of this matter is warranted. 

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSIONS 

The companies seek our approval of the proposed Memorandum of Agreement with 
respect to the reciprocal abandonment plan under the provisions of Section 380(12) of 
the Railway Act, which reads as follows: 

"All contracts, agreements and arrangements between the company and any 
other company, or any province, municipality or corporation having authority to 
construct or operate a telegraph or telephone system or line, whether such 
authority is derived from the Parliament of Canada or otherwise, for the regula- 
tion and interchange of telegraph or telephone messages or service passing to and 
from their respective telegraph or telephone systems and lines, or for the division 
or apportionment of telegraph or telephone tolls, or generally in relation to the 
management, working or operation of their respective telegraph or telephone 
systems or lines, or any of them, or any part thereof, or of any other systems or 
lines operated in connection with them or either of them, are subject to the 
approval of the Commission, and shall be submitted to and approved by the 
Commission before such contract, agreement or arrangement has any force or 
effect." 

Before dealing with the provisions of Section 380(12), however, we consider it is 
important to make a clear distinction between three different cases with respect to the 
closing, abandonment or joint operation of telegraph offices, because the Commission's 
powers are quite different in each case. These three cases are: 

(1) The independent action of a single telegraph company in closing its telegraph 
office at a particular point: (generally, this is accompanied by the provision of 
telegraph service to and from that point by means of free telephone long-distance 
service to and from its nearest open telegraph office); 

(2) The establishment and operation of joint telegraph offices; and 

(3) The reciprocal abandonment of telegraph service, such as is proposed by the 
application now before us. 

So far as case (1) is concerned, it must be observed that Sections 168 and 182 of 
the Railway Act, dealing with abandonment of operation and the closing or abandon- 
ment of stations, do not apply to telegraph companies by virtue of the exceptions set out 
in Section 380(13) of the Railway Act. Thus, a telegraph company does not require the I 
prior approval of the Commission to close any of its own telegraph offices or to abandon 
the provision of telegraph service at a particular point. It follows from this that the 
Commission cannot direct a telegraph company to maintain offices or service at particular 
points, nor can the Commission direct a telegraph company to reinstate service after it 
has ceased to provide it. 

58 R.T.C.

JANUARY 1968 



Case (2) has, in the past, involved approval of the pooling of tolls under the 
provisions of Section 318 of the Railway Act, which were in effect prior to the 
enactment of the National Transportation Act, (c. 69 of the Statutes of 1967). Section 
44 of this latter Statute repealed Section 318 of the Railway Act and, consequently, 
those provisions no longer prevail, although they were a consideration dealt with by the 
Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada in its Judgment of January 16, 1961, 
(51 B.T.C. 25), in connection with the joint telegraph office at Fort William, Ontario. 

Although a telegraph company does not require the prior approval of the Commis- 
sion, when taking independent action to close any of its own telegraph offices or to 
withdraw service at particular points, the provisions of Section 380(12) of the Railway 
Act apply where such action is not independent but is pursuant to an agreement 
providing for reciprocal action on the part of another telegraph company; (Case (3)). The 
pertinent clauses of Section 380 (12), with respect to such an agreement are as follows: 

"All agreements between the company and any other company, 

generally in relation to the management, working or operation of their respective 

telegraph systems or lines, or any of them, or any part thereof, are subject 

to the approval of the Commission, and shall be submitted to and approved by the 
Commission before such agreement has any force or effect." 

The Railway Act is silent as to the principles or criteria to be taken into consider- 
ation by the Commission in determining whether or not an agreement of the type now 
before us should be approved by the Commission. However, it seems to us self-evident 
that we cannot apply principles or criteria which are based upon a jurisdiction we do 
not possess in cases where telegraph companies independently close offices, or withdraw 
or curtail service. Thus, for example, the adequacy of telegraph service resulting from the 
implementation of an agreement for reciprocal abandonment cannot be a criterion, 
because it would imply powers we do not possess, with respect to abandonment of tele- 
graph service generally, even though the telegraph companies have declared in their 
submissions that the reciprocal abandonment program will not adversely affect service to 
the public. 

Having regard to our powers with respect to telegraph companies, which are 
principally with respect to telegraph tolls to be charged to the public, we consider that the 
criterion to be applied in dealing with an application for approval of an agreement for 
reciprocal abandonment of telegraph service is simply the prudence of management in 
entering into such an agreement. 

To sum up the matter, the evidence before us is that no deterioration of service 
will be encountered by the public, nor will it be called upon to meet higher charges as a 
result of implementation of the agreement. There will also be benefits achieved by the 
companies concerned in respect of their expenses which can redound to the ultimate 
benefit of the public. Consequently, we consider the plan set out in the agreement to be a 
prudent one which should be approved by us.

As noted above, the proposed agreement is based upon an equalization of gross 
revenues and not upon an equalization of the numbers of offices to be closed. Further, 
the last paragraph of the proposed agreement provides for either additions to, or deletions 
from, the list of telegraph offices set out in Appendix "A" thereto. Our approval of the 
proposed agreement must therefore, we consider, be directed to the ten principles in 
such agreement, upon which the two companies propose to base the reciprocal abandon- 
ment of telegraph offices, and not upon the specific offices which may be involved from 
time to time as Appendix "A" is modified in the light of changing conditions affecting 
gross revenues from commercial telegraph service. To limit our approval to specifically 
named telegraph offices would imply, not only that the Commission has jurisdiction 
over the closing of a single telegraph office, (which it clearly has not), but also that 
the proposed agreement is based upon numbers of offices rather than upon an equaliza- 
tion of gross revenues. 

We therefore consider that revisions to Appendix "A", following approval of the 
duly executed Memorandum of Agreement, are to be filed with the Commission for 
information only. 

FINDINGS 

We therefore find that the proposed Memorandum of Agreement, filed with the 
companies' application of February 22, 1967, is one that should be approved by the 
Commission. Upon the filing of such Agreement, duly executed by both companies, 
an Order will issue approving it.

JUGEMENT 

PAR SON COMITE DES TRANSPORTS PAR CHEMIN DE FER: 

Le 22 fevrier 1967, la Compagnie des chemins de fer Nationaux du Canada, division 
des telecommunications, et la Compagnie de chemin de fer du Pacifique-Canadien, divi- 
sion des telecommunications, ont, en vertu des dispositions du paragraphe (12) de Particle 
380 de la Loi sur les chemins de fer, presente une requete en vue d'obtenir l'approbation 
du projet d'une convention devant intervenir entre les deux compagnies et prevoyant 
l'abandon reciproque de bureaux telegraphiques dans les regions ou le trafic telegraphique 
ne justifie pas le maintien de bureaux par les deux compagnies. 

Les raisons invoquees pour justifier ce projet de convention sont indiquees dans 
le preambule du projet. Parmi ces raisons, il y a la diminution reguliere du volume des 
messages telegraphiques par suite de l'amelioration et de la diversification des moyens 
de communication en general, diminution qui a ete d'environ 5 p. 100 par annee entre 
1956 et 1966, et qui a quelque peu augmente depuis 1956; il y a egalement le fait que 
la creation de quelque vingt bureaux de telegraphe communs n'a pas donne entierement 
satisfaction et a, en outre, empeche la realisation de toutes les economies possibles, par 
suite du maintien de bureaux doubles. 

A la lumiere de cette experience, les deux compagnies estiment maintenant qu'elles 
serviraient mieux l'interet du public et qu'elles parviendraient a assurer un service tele- 
graphique meilleur, plus efficace, si elles etablissaient des zones d 'exploitation reservees 
pour chaque compagnie, plutot que de continuer a se faire concurrence pour un trafic 
telegraphique qui diminue. Avec une telle politique, les services et les installations de 
chaque compagnie seraient conjugues et complementaires; il ne s'ensuivrait aucune 
augmentation du cout des messages telegraphiques pour le public et la qualite du 
service assure n'en subirait aucune diminution. 

Le projet de convention expose en detail dix principes sur lesquels se fonde la 
suppression de services d'une compagnie en faveur de services exclusifs d'une autre 
compagnie. Ces principes peuvent se resumer a ceci: a) les suppressions reciproques 

58 R.T.C.

devront s'appuyer sur une perequation des recettes brutes des bureaux de telegraphe 
commerciaux et aucune des deux compagnies ne devra augmenter sa part de ces recettes 
brutes au detriment de l'autre; b) la disposition des bureaux devra etre un facteur a 
considerer; c) les deux compagnies devront adopter une politique identique a l'egard 
des employes touches par le regime de suppressions reciproques. 

Bien que Tappendice "A" du projet de convention donne une liste de 51 bureaux 
telegraphiques pour lesquels les deux compagnies sont tombees d'accord pour appliquer 
le regime de suppressions reciproques, cet appendice "A" prevoit egalement la possibility 
de modifier cette liste de temps a autre. 

Relativement aux requetes des compagnies, nous avons recu du president general 
du syndicat des telegraphistes (Commercial Telegraphers' Union, C.N.T. Division 43 et 
C.P.R. Division 1) des memoires dates du 2 juin 1967. Le syndicat a adopte la position 
suivante: l'approbation du projet de convention, si elle etait donnee, devrait s'etendre 
a au plus seize endroits determines ou la demande affirme que les bureaux telegraphiques 
sont censes etre abandonnes immediatement, et qu'en outre la fermeture d'un bureau 
ne devrait pas etre autorisee avant la fin des negotiations relatives aux employes touches 
par ces mesures. 

Depuis la presentation de ces memoires, il a ete passe le 2 octobre 1967, entre le 
syndicat et les compagnies, un contrat prevoyant "des conditions destinees a reduire au 
minimum pour les employes en cause les inconvenients resultant de la suppression reci- 
proque de services, conformement aux dispositions de l'Article VII de la Convention 
generate du 14 mars 1967". En consequence, le Comite des transports par chemin de 
fer a ecrit au syndicat le 17 octobre 1967 et a informe son president general qu'a la 
lumiere des documents en possession du Comite, il semblait que ce dernier etait en 
mesure de donner suite a la requete commune des deux compagnies, en date du 22 
fevrier 1967, sans avoir recours a une audience publique. Le Comite a demande au 
syndicat s'il partageait son point de vue, et ce dernier a, le 16 novembre 1967, avise 
le Comite qu'en consideration du contrat du 2 octobre 1967, il n 'etait pas dans ses 
intentions de comparaitre devant le Comite a une audience publique. 

Les consequences defavorables qu'aura probablement, pour les employes des 
compagnies en cause, la mise en oeuvre du regime projete, ont egalement ete etudiees 
dans un certain nombre de memoires presentes par d'autres interesses, mais, a cause de 
l'accord du 2 octobre 1967, il apparait superflu de les exposer ici. 

Ont egalement ete recus d'autres memoires qui s'opposent a la fermeture des 
bureaux telegraphiques dans huit localites; ces objections sont generalement fondees 
sur l'hypothese selon laquelle le service telegraphique serait reduit ou entierement 
supprime. Cependant, comme on l'a indique precedemment, le regime propose d'abandon 
reciproque ne vise ni a la reduction ni a la suppression du service telegraphique, mais 
plutot a l'exploitation d'un service complet par une seule compagnie a l'interieur d'une 
zone convenue d'exploitation exclusive.

Au debut, en nous occupant des memoires que nous avions recus en opposition a 
la requete des compagnies datee du 22 fevrier 1967, nous avions indique notre intention 
de tenir une audience publique sur cette question. Etant donne qu'un accord est intervenu 
entre les compagnies et le syndicat et que la proposition des compagnies n'affectera ni le 
cout ni la qualite des services a la disposition du public, nous ne considerons plus que 
le cout de la tenue d'une audience publique a ce sujet soit justifie. 

DISCUSSION ET CONCLUSIONS 

Les compagnies demandent que nous approuvions ce projet de convention relatif 
au regime d'abandon reciproque en vertu des dispositions du paragraphe (12) de l'article 
380 de la Loi sur les chemins de fer, qui est ainsi libelle: 

"Tous les contrats, marches et arrangements conclus entre la compagnie et une 
autre compagnie, ou une province, municipalite ou corporation qui possede le 
pouvoir de construire ou de tenir en service un reseau ou une ligne de telephone 
ou de telegraphe, que ce pouvoir lui vienne du Parlement du Canada ou d'ailleurs, 
et visant la reglementation et l'echange de communications et de services tele- 
graphiques ou telephoniques entre leurs reseaux et lignes telegraphiques ou tele- 
phoniques respectifs, ou la division ou repartition des taux de telegraphe ou de 
telephone, ou se rapportant d'une maniere generate a l'administration, a l'exploita- 
tion ou a la mise en service de Tun ou de plusieurs de leurs reseaux ou de Tune 
ou de plusieurs de leurs lignes de telegraphe ou de telephone respectives, en 
totalite ou en partie, ou d'autres reseaux ou lignes exploites en liaison avec les 
reseaux ou lignes susdits ou Tun ou l'autre desdits reseaux ou lignes, sont subor- 
donnes a l'agrement de la Commission et doivent lui etre soumis et etre agrees 
par elle avant que lesdits contrats, marches ou arrangements deviennent execu- 
toires." 

Toutefois, avant de traiter des dispositions du paragraphe (12) de l'article 380, 
nous considerons qu'il importe d'etablir une distinction bien nette entre trois cas 
differents relativement a la fermeture, a l'abolition ou a l'exploitation de bureaux de 
telegraphe communs, parce que les pouvoirs de la Commission sont entierement 
differents dans chaque cas. Ces cas sont les suivants: 

(1) L'initiative prise isolement par une seule compagnie de telegraphe qui ferme 
son bureau de telegraphe en un point donne: (cette mesure est generalement 
suivie de dispositions prevoyant l'etablissement d'un service telegraphique avec 
ce point au moyen d'un service telephonique interurbain assure gratuitement 
avec le plus proche bureau de telegraphe en exploitation; 

(2) L'installation et l'exploitation de bureaux de telegraphe communs; et 

(3) L'abandon reciproque de bureaux de telegraphe, comme le propose la 
requete qui nous est actuellement soumise.

BROCHURE No 2

Dans le premier cas, il est a noter que les articles 168 et 182 de la Loi sur les 
chemins de fer, qui traitent de Pabandon de l'exploitation ou de la fermeture ou de 
l'abandon de gares, ne s'appliquent pas aux compagnies de telegraphe, en vertu des 
exceptions prevues au paragraphe (13) de l'article 380 de la Loi sur les chemins de 
fer. Ainsi, une compagnie de telegraphe n'est pas tenue d'obtenir au prealable l'approba- 
tion de la Commission pour fermer l'un de ses bureaux de telegraphe ou pour abandonner 
l'exploitation d'un service telegraphique en un point donne. II s'ensuit que la Commission 
ne peut ordonner a une compagnie de telegraphe de maintenir des bureaux ou un 
service en un point donne, ni l'obliger a retablir un service qu'elle a cesse d'assurer. 

En ce qui concerne le deuxieme cas, il fallait, dans 1 passe, en vertu des disposi- 
tions de l'article 318 de la Loi sur les chemins de fer, qui etait en vigueur avant la 
promulgation de la Loi nationale sur les transports (chap. 69 des statuts de 1967), que 
l'approbation des taux soit obtenue. L'article 44 de cette derniere loi abroge l'article 
318 de la Loi sur les chemins de fer, et, en consequence, ces dispositions ne sont 
plus applicables, bien que la Commission des transports du Canada en ait tenu compte 
dans son jugement du 16 janvier 1961 (51 B.T.C. 25), relatif au bureau de telegraphe 
commun de Fort William (Ont.). 

Bien qu'une compagnie de telegraphe n'ait pas besoin de l'approbation prealable 
de la Commission lorsqu'elle prend isolement des mesures en vue de la fermeture de 
l'un de ses propres bureaux de telegraphe, ou de la suppression de services, en un point 
donne, les dispositions du paragraphe (12) de l'article 380 de la Loi sur les chemins de 
fer sont applicables lorsqu'une telle initiative n'est pas prise isolement mais qu'elle 
resulte d'un marche prevoyant une action reciproque de la part d'une autre compagnie 
de telegraphe. 

Dans le troisieme cas, les dispositions du paragraphe (12) de l'article 380 qui se 
rapportent a un tel marche sont les suivantes: 

"Tous marches conclus entre la compagnie et une autre compa- 
gnie se rapportant d'une maniere generate a radministration, a l'exploitation 

ou a la mise en service de l'un ou de plusieurs de leurs reseaux ou de l'une ou de 

plusieurs de leurs lignes de telegraphe respectives, en totalite ou en partie sont 

subordonnes a l'agrement de la Commission et doivent lui etre soumis et etre 
agrees par elle avant que lesdits marches deviennent executoires." 

La Loi sur les chemins de fer est muette sur les principes ou les criteres a prendre 
en consideration par la Commission pour determiner si un marche du type de celui qui 
nous est soumis doit etre ou non soumis a l'agrement de la Commission. Toutefois, il 
nous apparait bien evident que nous ne pouvons appliquer des principes ou des criteres 
fondes sur une competence que nous ne possedons pas, ce qui est le cas lorsque des 
compagnies de telegraphe prennent isolement l'initiative de fermer des bureaux ou de 
supprimer ou de reduire des services. Ainsi, par exemple, la suffisance d'un service 
telegraphique resultant de l'execution d'un marche relatif a un abandon reciproque 
ne saurait servir de critere, parce que cela supposerait des pouvoirs que nous ne 

58 R.T.C 



-13- 



BROCHURE No 2 



JANVIER 1968 



possedons pas relativement a l'abandon des services telegraphiques en general, meme si 
les compagnies de telegraphe ont declare dans leurs memoires que le regime d'abandon 
reciproque ne derangerait pas le service assure au public. 

En ce qui concerne notre competence vis-a-vis des compagnies de telegraphe, 
competence qui a principalement pour objet les taux telegraphiques a demander au 
public, nous estimons que le critere a utiliser pour examiner la demande d'approbation 
d'un marche concernant l'abandon reciproque de services telegraphiques est simplement 
la question de savoir si la direction fait preuve de sagesse, en concluant un tel marche. 

En conclusion, il nous apparait bien evident que l'execution du marche n'entrainera 
pour le public ni un service moins bon, ni une augmentation des taux. Les compagnies 
en cause realiseront en outre des economies d'exploitation qui pourront etre finalement 
a l'avantage du public. Nous estimons en consequence que le regime etabli dans le 
marche est sage et que nous devons Papprouver. 

Comme il a ete mentionne ci-dessus, le marche propose est fonde sur une pere- 
quation des recettes brutes des compagnies, et non sur le nombre de bureaux qui 
doivent etre fermes. En outre, le dernier paragraphe du marche propose prevoit soit 
des additions, soit des suppressions dans la liste des bureaux de telegraphe figurant 
dans l'appendice "A" de ce marche. Nous estimons, en consequence, que notre approba- 
tion du marche propose doit s'appuyer sur les dix principes qui figurent dans ce marche 
et sur lesquels les deux compagnies se proposent de se fonder pour abandonner recipro- 
quement des bureaux de telegraphe, et non sur les bureaux determines qui pourront 
de temps a autre etre mis en cause au fur et a mesure des modifications qui seront 
apportees a l'appendice "A", par suite de revolution des recettes brutes du service 
telegraphique commercial. Limiter notre approbation a des bureaux nommement de- 
signed impliquerait que, non seulement la Commission a competence pour fermer un 
bureau de telegraphe en particulier (ce qui n'est evidemment pas le cas) mais aussi 
que le marche propose est fonde sur le nombre de bureaux et non sur une perequation 
des recettes brutes. 

Nous estimons done que les revisions de l'appendice "A" qui viendront apres 
l'approbation de la convention dument souscrite devront etre deposees a la Commission 
a titre de renseignements seulement. 



CONCLUSIONS 

Nous en arrivons done a la conclusion que le projet de convention depose avec la 



demande du 22 fevrier 1967 des compagnies est un projet qui doit etre approuve par la 
Commission. Des que cette convention, dument souscrite par les deux compagnies, aura 
ete deposee, il sera rendu une ordonnance qui l'approuvera.

ORAL JUDGMENT 

COMMISSIONER WOODARD: This application from Canadian Pacific to inau- 
gurate an Expanded Customer Service Plan on the Trenton Division is dated May 1 5th, 
1967. In accordance with its usual practice the Railway Transport Committee commu- 
nicated with the various municipalities concerned, giving them an outline of the procedure 
in the event they wished to file submissions in respect of the application.

PAMPHLET NO. 4 



FEBRUARY 1968 



Following an exchange of correspondence with the interested parties, arrangements 
were made by the Railway Transport Committee to direct its field inspectors in the area 
involved to conduct a thorough review of the application to determine the effect of 
implementing such a plan on railway patrons. One of the features brought to light in 
this investigation was the fact that a notice had not been posted in the stations at which 
the agent is to be removed notifying the local municipalities that such an application was 
on file with the Railway Transport Committee. Canadian Pacific subsequently posted 
the required notice in accordance with the regulations of the Railway Transport 
Committee. 

It is apparent from the evidence adduced at this hearing that Canadian Pacific 
has made a concerted effort to eliminate the obvious weaknesses which developed in 
the only previous application of this nature dealt with by the Board of Transport 
Commissioners and involving the Lethbridge Alberta area. The Company has reviewed 
the proposal not only with the municipal representatives in the Trenton Division area 
but also with the principal shippers. 

The complaints which have been registered with the Committee prior to and 
during the course of the hearing are within the competence of the Company to deal 
with. In the event that these complaints are not satisfied or if additional complaints 
develop following the inauguration of the plan which are not adequately dealt with by 
the Company, the Railway Transport Committee has the power to investigate the 
matter and take whatever action is considered necessary and in the public interest. 

The plan does involve a considerable disruption in staff. We have expressed some 
concern over the plight of the individuals involved. The Company has reached an agree- 
ment with the organization representing the agents and telegraphers under which 
preference of employment in the new plan will be given to members of this group 
whose present positions are to be abolished. A similar agreement is now in process of 
development with the Brotherhood of Railway and Steamship Clerks. 

Under these circumstances we will grant the application on the condition that 
the Expanded Customer Service Plan will not become effective prior to the Railway 
Transport Committee receiving a copy of the signed agreement with the Clerks Union. 

An order will issue accordingly. 

This order will require Canadian Pacific to continue to keep their stations heated 
and lighted for the convenience of the travelling public at all stations in the area involved 
which are now served by passenger trains. 

THE CHAIRMAN: I would just like to add one thing, and that is the Railway 
Transport Committee was particularly concerned with the pending agreement with the 
Railway Clerks. That is why we have made our finding conditional on its being filed in 
its final form, and that is why we have said that the Expanded Customer Service Plan 
may not be implemented until that takes place. I am sure the parties will understand 
why. Thank you. 

MR. DAY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman and Mr. Commissioner Woodard.

WHEREAS subsections (2), (3) and (6) of section 469 of the Railway Act provide 
for the calculation of "normal payments" in respect of "eligible companies" and amounts 
for payment to a non-railway transportation company as follows: 

"(2) For each of the years 1967 to 1974, inclusive, the Commission shall 
calculate the normal payment that would have been made to a railway 
company if the following sums were available to be divided among eligible 
companies, namely: 

(a) for 1967, the sum of one hundred and ten million dollars: 

(b) for 1968, the sum of ninety-six million dollars; 

(c) for 1969, the sum of eighty-two million dollars;

(f) for 1972, the sum of forty million dollars; 

(g) for 1973, the sum of twenty -six million dollars; and 

(h) for 1974, the sum of twelve million dollars." 

"(3) The method of calculating a normal payment shall be determined by the 
Commission but in making its calculation the Commission shall have regard 
to all factors that in its opinion are relevant, including the methods of 
allocating among eligible companies the sums provided before the coming 
into force of this section by Parliament to reimburse such companies for 
maintaining the level of rates for freight traffic at a level that satisfied or 
would have satisfied O rder No. 10 1055 of the Board of Transport Com- 
missioners for Canada dated April 27, 1960." 

"(6) The Commission may, in calculating a normal payment under this section 
in respect of any year, deduct from such payment appropriate amounts for

payment to any transportation company that was subject to Order No. 96300 
of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada dated November 17th, 
1958, and that is not a railway company, and may recommend payment to 
any such transportation company in respect of such year of an amount based 
on the position of such transportation company in relation to railway com- 
panies under that Order." 

AND WHEREAS provisions for equalization payments and for adjustments 
are made in subsections (4) and (5) of section 469 of the Railway Act as follows: 

"(4) When the normal payment calculated in respect of a railway company for a 
year exceeds, or in the opinion of the Commission is likely to exceed, the 
aggregate of the amounts payable in respect of that year to a railway com- 
pany under sections 314E, 314G, 314J and 329, the Minister of Finance 
may, on the recommendation of the Commission, pay out of the Con- 
solidated Revenue Fund to such railway company, at such times and by such 
instalments as the Governor in Council may prescribe, an amount equal to 
the amount by which the normal payment calculated in respect of such 
railway company exceeds the aggregate of the amounts paid or payable to 
such railway company under sections 314E, 314G, 314J and 329 in respect 
of that year." 

"(5) The Minister of Finance on the recommendation of the Commission may 
make an adjustment in any payment to a railway company under this 
section or sections 314E, 314G, 314J and 329 in or for one year for or on 
account of an underpayment or overpayment made under this section in 
an earlier year." 

AND WHEREAS Order in Council P.C. 1968-314, dated February 15, 1968, 
prescribes that the Minister of Finance may make payments, including monthly instal- 
ments, in or in respect of the year 1968, under sections 314E, 314G, 314J, 329 and

Lines Limited the percentage which each eligible company's allocation for 1967 
was of the total normal payments for 1967, as set out in paragraph 2 of Order No. 
124455 of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada dated May 17, 1967.

CANADIAN TRANSPORT COMMISSION 

IN THE MATTER OF the Application of the Canadian National Millers 
Association for a determination as to the level of rates applicable on September 
30, 1966 to the movement of flour for export in accordance with the provisions of 
section 329 of the Railway Act.

JUDGMENT 

BY ITS RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE: 

This is an Application by the Canadian National Millers Association for a 
determination by the Commission as to the level of rates applicable to the movement 
of flour for export in accordance with the provisions of section 329 of the Railway 
Act. Both the applicant and the respondent railway companies have advised the Railway 
Transport Committee that they are agreeable to a determination of the matter at issue 
upon the basis of the written submissions they have filed, without the necessity of a 
public hearing. 

Section 329 of the Railway Act, as amended by section 50 of the National 
Transportation Act, came into force with the proclamation of Part V of the National 
Transportation Act effective March 23, 1967. The provisions of section 329 relating 
to the rates applicable to the movement of flour for export are as follows: 

"329.(1) In this section, 

(a) "Eastern port" means any of the ports of Halifax, Saint John, West 
Saint John and Montreal and any of the ports on the St. Lawrence River 



to the east of Montreal; 



5 8 R.T.C. 




PAMPHLET NO. 5 

(b) "Eastern rates" means, 



MARCH 1968 



(ii) in relation to flour, the freight rates applying on the 30th day of 
September, 1966, to the movement of flour for export, from any inland 
point to an Eastern port; 

(c) "Inland point" means, 

(ii) in relation to flour, any point in Canada east of the 90th degree of 

west longitude; 

(d) "flour" means flour milled from grain; 



(2) For the purpose of encouraging the continued use of the Eastern ports 
for the export of grain and flour, 



(b) rates on flour moving for export to an Eastern port from any inland 
point over any line of a railway company subject to the jurisdiction of 
Parliament shall be maintained at the level of rates applying on the 30th 
day of September, 1966, to the movement of such flour to Eastern ports. 

(3) The Commission shall from time to time determine in respect of 



(b) the movement of flour for export, by railway to an Eastern port from 
an inland point a level of rates consistent with section 334 and shall 
cause such rates to be published in the Canada Gazette. 



(5) Until such time as the Commission determines and publishes a level of 
rates under subsection (3), 



(b) the rates applying on the 30th day of September, 1966, for the move- 
ment of flour for export from an inland point to an Eastern port shall be 
deemed to be the rates determined and published by the Commission 
under subsection (3)." 

The Canadian National Millers Association submits that the effect of the provisions 
cited above is to create statutory rates on the movement of flour from an "inland 
point" for export through an "Eastern port", and that the level of such statutory 
rates is the level that was in effect on September 30, 1966. The Association points 
out however that, subsequent to September 30, 1966, and prior to the coming into 
force of the provisions of Section 329 on March 23, 1967, the rates on flour were 
increased by 2 cents per 100 pounds, "in order to maintain 'parity' with inland points 
which had sustained an increase in in-transit charges from 34 to 5^."* Accordingly, the 
Association requests the Commission "to revise the tariff in question by reducing the 
said rate on flour ex-bayport milled at port at which received and shipped for export 

♦Effective September 5, 1967 such charges were increased to 5 1/4^. 
58 R.T.C.

via eastern ports." 

The railway companies, in their answer, refer to hearings of the Board of 
Transport Commissioners for Canada, held on January 11 and 12, 1965, at which 
certain ex-lake millers endeavoured to show that an additional charge of 3 cents per 100 
pounds, (now 5 1/4 cents per 100 pounds), on flour ex Bay Port, milled at the port 
at which received and shipped for export via Eastern ports, was unreasonable and 
unjustly discriminatory. The application made by such ex-lake millers was dismissed 
by Board Order 118905 of November 8, 1965, principally on the grounds that "the 
rates in question were designed to promote equality as between inland and lake-port 
mills at destination," (55 B.T.C. 547 at page 553). In referring to this decision and the 
application now before us, the railway companies assert that, if the applicant's 
position is sustained, this would disrupt parity between lakeport and inland millers, a 
parity which the Board of Transport Commissioners had found on numerous past 
occasions to be sound and reasonable, and would place inland millers at a distinct 
disadvantage with respect to millers at the Bay Ports. 

The Canadian National Millers Association, in reply, submits that the position 
taken by the railway companies is completely irrelevant, in that its application is based 
upon a statutory requirement which has no bearing on the relative rates payable by ex- 
lake millers and inland millers, or upon any question of unjust discrimination in, or 
unreasonableness of, rates. In the opinion of the Association, the issue is simply that of 
determining, as a question of fact, what were the rates applicable to flour on September 
30, 1966. 

The railways' further submissions on this point assert that the rates prescribed by 
section 329 of the Railway Act are the basic rates in effect on September 30, 1966, 
"exclusive of the equalizing factor introduced to maintain parity between the inland 
and Bay Port Millers", and that "it is not the intent of section 329 to consider the 
application of that equalizing factor in prescribing rates at the September 30, 1966 
level" 

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSIONS 

The level of line-haul rates applicable to the movement of flour from an "inland 
point", (as defined in section 329 of the Railway Act), for export through an "Eastern 
port", has not changed from the level in effect on September 30, 1966. The issue 
before us, therefore, is simply whether the term "freight rates", as used in paragraph 
(b) of subsection (1) of section 329 in relation to flour, is restricted to such basic 
line-haul rates, (as the railway companies submit), or whether such term has a wider 
meaning and includes other rates or charges, including what the railway companies 
have described as "an equalizing factor introduced to maintain parity between the 
inland and Bay Port millers." 

In this connection, it should be noted that although section 329 defines 
"Eastern rates" in relation to flour movements, the term "freight rates" used in 

58 R.T.C. 



- 125- 



PAMPHLET NO. 5 



MARCH 1968 



such section is still subject to the definition set out in subsection (32) of section 2 of 
the Railway Act, which reads in part as follows: 

"(32) "toll", or "rate", when used with reference to a railway, means any toll, 

rate, charge or allowance in connection with the 

carriage, shipment, transportation, care, handling or delivery of goods, or for any 

service incidental to the business of a carrier; or in respect of, 

goods transported, or intransit, or to be transported; " 

The additional charge in respect of the movement of flour, which is in issue in this 
case, does not apply until the grain is milled into flour and this fact must necessarily 
lead to the conclusion that, for the purpose of the provisions of section 329, such 
additional charge is part of the freight rates on flour and is embraced by the term 
"freight rates" as used in that section. 

In our view, a careful reading of the definition of "rate" quoted above, compels 
the conclusion that the term "rate" is not restricted to line-haul rates and includes any 
additional charge or allowance in respect of the movement of flour from an "inland 
point" for export through an "Eastern port", including what the railway companies 
have described as an "equalizing factor". 

The railway companies have asserted that, if the applicant's position is upheld, 
this would disrupt parity, as between lake-port and inland millers, and would place 
inland millers at a distinct disadvantage with respect to millers at the Bay Ports. 
For this assertion to be true, the in-transit charge applicable on September 30th, 1966 
would have had to be on two different levels, with a higher level applying to the 
inland millers. A careful examination of the relevant tariff provisions, however, fails 
to disclose any support for such an assertion. Since September 30, 1966, the changes 
in the in-transit charge, (more properly termed a "stop-off charge"), were as follows: 

Stop-Off Charge in Cents per 100 Pounds 



Date in Effect Bay Ports Inland 
September 30, 1966 3 4 3 4 

November 2, 1966 5 4 5 4

FINDINGS 

We therefore find, and so rule, that the term "Eastern rates," as used in paragraph 
(b) of subsection (1) of section 329 of the Railway Act, is subject to the definition set 
out in subsection (32) of section 2 of the Railway Act, and includes such ancillary 
charges as "in-transit" or "stop-off charges. We also find, and so rule, that the "in- 
transit," or "stop-off charge, (or what the railway companies have chosen to term "an 
equalizing factor"), which was applicable on the 30th day of September 1966 was 34 
per 1 00 pounds. That charge of 34 per 100 pounds, therefore, came into force as statutory 
rate under the provisions of paragraph (b) of subsection (1) of section 329 of the Railway 
Act on March 23, 1967, the date on which section 329 came into force. The respondent 
railway companies are therefore directed to revise their tariffs to comply our with 
findings.

ORAL JUDGMENT 

COMMISSIONER WOODARD: The application from Canadian Pacific to in- 
augurate a Customer Service Centre at South Edmonton, Alberta to provide all 
customer service for the Company's Edmonton Division is dated June 22, 1967. In 
accordance with its usual practice the Railway Transport Committee communicated 
with the various municipalities concerned, giving them an outline of the procedure in the 
event they wished to file submissions in respect of the application. 

Following an exchange of correspondence with interested parties, arrangements 
were made by the Railway Transport Committee to direct its field inspectors to conduct 
a thorough review of the application to determine the effect on railway patrons of 
implementing such a plan. 

Opposition registered with the Committee prior to and during the course of this 
Hearing is such that we are of the opinion that the closing of the agencies contingent 
upon the inauguration of this service will not unduly inconvenience the patrons of the 

58 R.T.C. 



PAMPHLET NO. 6 



MARCH 1968 



Railway and we are prepared to grant the application subject to the following stipu- 
lations: 

In the event that complaints arise following implementation of the Plan which are 
not adequately dealt with by the Company, the Railway Transport Committee has the 
power to investigate the matter and take whatever action is considered necessary and in 
the public interest. 

Having regard to the evidence adduced in respect of the Company's proposal as 
it affects the City of Wetaskiwin, the Committee is of the view that the Company should 
be permitted to implement its plan but that the agent shall be retained for a period 
of six months following its introduction. Prior to the expiration of this period the 
Committee will arrange to have one of its field officers review the situation. If this 
review shows no further need for the agent an Order will issue authorizing his removal. 

Upon our return to Ottawa an Order will issue accordingly. 

This Order will also require Canadian Pacific to continue to keep their stations 
heated and lighted for the convenience of the travelling public at all stations in the area 
involved which are now served by passenger trains.

BY THE RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 
JUDGMENT 

The Judgment of Jones, Irwin, Kirk and Woodard, C.C., was delivered by: 
JONES, Chairman: 

The Bell Telephone Company of Canada applied to The Railway Transport 
Committee, Canadian Transport Commission, for authority to extend its Employees' 
Savings Plan to the employees of its subsidiary companies. 

The Employees' Savings Plan which is the subject of this application was 
approved by the then Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada on February 18, 
1966, by its Order No. 120008. The application of the Company at that time was, in 
effect, for authority to substitute the Savings Plan for the old Employees' Stock Plan 
which had been in force, in a variety of forms since 1922, and since 1929 with Board 
approval, when Parliament first conferred that power. The application of February 
1966 also asked for authority to extend the Savings Plan to the Company's subsidiaries, 
principally Northern Electric Company, Limited. This portion of the application was 
dismissed without reasons being stated, and the Board in its Judgment said: 

"We have not been persuaded that the 'Employees' Savings Plan' should be 
extended to subsidiaries of the Company, but should the Company wish to have 
the matter reviewed by the whole Board it may so request and the Board will 
hear it at a time and place to be set." 

It should be observed in passing that the Judgment of the Board just referred to 
was given after a public hearing at which evidence in support of its contention was 
introduced by the Company. 

The present application was made to the Committee on March 12, 1968, and at 
the subsequent public hearing held on April 4, 1968, Counsel for the Company stated 
that it was not one for a review of the Judgment of February 1966; it was a new 
application altogether. 

By way of explanation for the passage of more than two years since the 1966 
Judgment of the Board of Transport Commissioners, Counsel referred to the Company's 
attempt to have the requirement that the Committee must authorize the issue, sale or 
disposition of the Company's capital stock, rescinded by amendment to its Act of 
Incorporation, which amendment was only denied by Parliament earlier this year. 

Accordingly, we have before us a new application, supported by fresh evidence, 
for authority to extend the benefits of the Employees' Savings Plan to subsidiaries of 
the Company, and we have treated it as such. 

With the enactment of the National Transportation Act, Statutes of Canada, 
1966-67, Chapter 69, and the general regulations made thereunder, the Railway

Transport Committee of the Canadian Transport Commission assumed the jurisdiction 
exercised by the former Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada. In the present 
case, the jurisdiction of the Committee is conferred by Section 2, Statutes of Canada, 
1957-58, Chapter 39, an Act that amends the Act of Incorporation of The Bell Telephone 
Company of Canada: 

"2. The Company shall not have power to make any issue, sale or other disposi- 
tion of its capital stock, or any part thereof, without first obtaining the approval 
of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada of the amount, terms and 
conditions of such issue, sale or other disposition of such capital stock. Subject to 
any applicable legislation relating to the issue, sale or other disposition of securities 
by corporations, the issue, sale or other disposition of capital stock by the Company 
in accordance with such approval shall be legal and valid." 

The proposal to extend the Company's Employees' Savings Plan to employees of 
subsidiaries clearly falls within this section. 

Counsel for the Company filed as Exhibit 1 a copy of the present Employees' 
Savings Plan, which at the moment applies only to its own employees. Section 1 of 
the Plan provides that: 

"Any regular employee who as of March 31st has completed at least three 
months of net credited service with The Bell Telephone Company of Canada 
(hereinafter referred to as the Company) shall be eligible to apply for participation 
in this Employees' Savings Plan during any enrolment period." 

In order to extend the Plan to subsidiaries, the Company proposes to amend Section 1 
by adding after the words "(hereinafter referred to as the Company)" the words "or 
certain of its subsidiary companies". It is this amendment for which the Company seeks 
the approval of the Committee. No further change in or amendment to the Plan is 
proposed. 

While we agree that the principle of extending the right to participate in the 
plan in its present form to employees of subsidiaries is sound and should be approved, 
we cannot agree that extension should be permitted in such general terms. 

On obtaining our approval the Company stated it would immediately extend the 
plan to the following subsidiary companies listed in Exhibit 2:

(* acquired March ] 968) 

When Exhibit 2 was filed, Mr. de Grandpre was asked whether the Company was 
seeking our authority to extend the Plan to all subsidiaries presently and hereafter 
owned or controlled, or whether the application was confined to the subsidiaries listed 
in Exhibit 2, as listed above. Mr. de Grandpre's answer was: 

"In order to try and clarify the Company's position, if the application is granted 
you have an undertaking by the Company to extend the Plan to these subsidiaries 
that are listed in Exhibit No. 2. This is for the immediate future but, of course, we 
could acquire other companies in (he futuie where we would have five, ten, fifteen, 
twenty-five employees. And we need a ceitain flexibility. We cannot leave them in 
a straitjacket for the future." 

It was explained to us that the by-laws of the Company, which had received the 
required shareholder approval, specifically empowered the directors of the Company to 
issue, sell or dispose of stock to persons including employees of the Company or of its 
subsidiaries. Indeed, it is the intention of the directors, should we approve the application 
in the terms asked, immediately to designate the employees of the subsidiaries listed 
in Exhibit 2 as being eligible to participate in the Employees' Savings Plan, and to do the 
same with respect to subsidiaries acquired lal ;r, but without further reference to the 
Committee. This, in our opinion, is the coirect interpretation to be placed on the 
statement of Mr. de Grandpre just quoted. 

Section 2 of Statutes of Canada l ( >57-58, Chapter 39, amending the Act of 
Incorporation of the Company, should not be interpreted so broadly. What it requires 
the Committee to review and approve is the amount, terms and conditions of " . . . any 
issue, sale or other disposition . . ." of the capital stock of The Bell Telephone Company 
of Canada. We consider the language of the Section envisages the extension of the 
Company's Employees' Savings Plan to designated subsidiary companies and their 
employees now owned or controlled. But we cannot approve, in advance, the extension 
of the Plan to companies which Bell Telephone may acquire in the future. Each case 

58 R.T.C. 



280 



PAMPHLET NO. 9 



JUNE 1968 



must be judged on its own merits, and any extension of the Savings Plan to the 
employees of companies acquired in the future must be the subject of a separate 
application. To hold otherwise would, in our opinion, be to abdicate our jurisdiction. 

The extension of the Employees' Savings Plan to the employees of the subsidiaries 
listed in Exhibit 2 will make another approximately 24,370 persons eligible to buy 
Bell Telephone shares under the terms and conditions of the Plan. As there are now 
about 38,000 employees of the Company who are eligible to buy under the Plan, our 
approval of this application will open the door to a total of approximately 62,000 
people. 

Mr. A. J. Groleau, an Executive Vice-President of the Company, was called and 
gave evidence before us. He described how the Plan presently operates and how it 
would apply to employees of subsidiary companies if its extension were approved. 

The principal purpose of the Savings Plan is to encourage employees to save 
a portion of their income during their period of work with the Company, and to 
enable them to become part owners of the business. Mr. Groleau was of opinion that 
this gave employees a greater sense of participation in the work of the Company, and 
more important from the standpoint of the employee, a supplemental income on 
retirement and the security afforded by a valuable and growing capital asset. 

From the standpoint of the Company, the Employees' Savings Plan is an 
important source of equity capital on reasonable terms which normally it would 
otherwise have to find at somewhat greater cost and less favourable terms. Another 
advantage to the Company is that employees' contributions to the Plan are made 
bi-monthly on each pay day, resulting in a steady and predictable cash flow. 

During the last fiscal year of the Company ending December 31, 1967, Bell 
Telephone employees participating in the Plan purchased 563,000 shares, and net 
proceeds of $21,367,000 were provided for Company use. The Company's construction 
program for 1967 cost $313,000,000, and the estimates for 1968 and 1969 are 
$317,000,000 and $333,000,000 respectively. The bulk of this money will be generated 
by the Company internally, but the estimated amount of additional capital required 
to support the 1968 program will be $125,000,000 and for the 1969 program, 
$131,000,000. The Company is very properly desirous of maintaining a prudent 
ratio between debt and equity in the issuance of its securities, and in this situation the 
equity capital available from the Employees' Savings Plan becomes significant in 
relation to the amounts the Company has to find in the open equity market. 

Studies by the Company and by the Committee's own technical advisers show 
that of the 38,000 eligible employees of Bell Telephone, about 25,000 - approximately 
65% - participated in the Plan at the end of 1967. As we have stated, this participation 
produced net proceeds of almost $22,000,000. We have calculated that on the basis of 
the information before use, extension of the Savings Plan to employees of the subsidiaries 
listed in Exhibit 2 would produce an additional $13,000,000 in future years, assuming 

58 R.T.C. 



- 281 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 9 



JUNE 1968 



that 65% of the eligible employees of the subsidiary companies participated in the Plan. 
When this amount is added to the net proceeds of purchases by Bell Telephone employees, 
it is possible to project an availability of capital from the Employees' Savings Plan in the 
order of $35,000,000. This is more than 10% of the annual estimated capital requirement 
of the Company for construction purposes in 1968 and 1969. 

The Company introduced extensive evidence to show the wide acceptance of 
employee stock participation plans in Canada and the United States. Canada's largest 
Manufacturing, Resource, Utility and Merchandising Companies were examined. Of the 
45 Canadian companies listed, 13 had employee savings plans and of these one had no 
subsidiaries. (British Columbia Telephone Co. participates in the plan of its parent 
company). Of the 12 companies, only 2 do not extend their plan to subsidiaries, and 
one of these is Bell Telephone. 

The data made available to the Committee in respect of the United States shows 
that of the 71 major American companies with plans, 17 are eliminated from con- 
sideration, either because they do not have subsidiaries or because insufficient data is 
available. Of the 54 companies remaining, 52 extend their plans to subsidiaries. Of the 
52 companies, 1 1 are utilities that undergo some form of regulation and in no case was 
approval of a regulatory tribunal required prior to extension of their plans to their 
subsidiaries, although in five cases the creation of the stock plan itself required approval 
of a regulatory body. 

In considering this application, we received satisfactory assurances that the Plan, 
subject to eligibility, is now readily available to all employees of Bell and on approval of 
this application would be available to all employees of the designated subsidiaries in the 
same way. Data based on salary ranges was not available, but the Company furnished us 
with information showing the extent of participation in relation to years of service. This 
is reproduced in tabular form below:

(Figures in brackets are percentage of those eligible)

14,506 (80.1) 13,126 (70.8) 27,632 (75.4) 



The above figures show that eligible employees with up to 4 years of service 
participate in the Employees' Savings Plan to the extent of 63.7%. The percentage rises 
with length of service and reaches 90% after 25 years.

There is every reason to think, and the Company so assures us, that there will be 
comparable participation by employees of subsidiaries once the Plan is made available 
to them, particularly in the case of Northern Electric Company, Limited. 

Indeed, one of the reasons advanced by the Company for approval of the 
extension of the Plan, was that it would do away with a strong feeling of discrimination 
as between employees of Bell and employees of subsidiaries who work together in large 
numbers and who are frequently moved back and forth between (he Company and its 
subsidiaries. Mr. Groleau went so far as to assure us that he had personal knowledge 
that this feeling exists, and that the inability of employees of subsidiaries to participate 
in the Plan was an important factor in collective bargaining. 

Notice of the application and the hearing was published in the Canada Gazette 
and in newspapers in both Ontario and Quebec. Notice was also sent to The Director of 
Investigation and Research under the Combines Investigation Act. No one appeared in 
opposition at the hearing, nor were any written or other representations received by the 
Committee. Mr. Raymond Rock and Mr. Rene Emard, both Members of Parliament, 
personally appeared at the hearing in support of the application. 

The statutory obligation upon the Committee is to examine the amount, terms 
and conditions of any issue, sale or other disposition of the capital stock of the Company, 
primarily in the interests of the telephone subscribers. The substantial amounts of 
capital that extension of the Plan to the subsidiaries will make available to the Company 
for use in its future construction programs is of material benefit to the subscribers to the 
extent that it reduces the amount of capital to be raised by bond issues or by equity 
issues through rights offerings. 

We are also of opinion that approval of the application will be to the benefit of 
the Company, its subsidiaries and their employees for the reasons urged upon us by the 
representatives of the Company who appeared at the hearing, and which we have dis- 
cussed throughout this Judgment. We are not persuaded that the statute requires us to 
go a step further to consider the interests of the general shareholders of Bell Telephone 
whose participation in equity issues will be somewhat reduced by increased employee 
participation. We should like to observe, however, that the Employees' Savings Plan 
and its predecessor plans have been in effect, with shareholder approval since 1922, 
and Board approval since 1929, that extension of the present Savings Plan to employees 
of subsidiaries is contemplated by the by-laws of the Company which themselves have 
shareholder approval, and that the price at which shares are available to employees is 
normally several percentage points higher than they are available to ordinary share- 
holders through the exercise of rights or share purchase warrants. 

The Employees' Savings Plan of the Company is therefore approved for extension 
to the subsidiary companies listed in Exhibit 2, and the necessary amendment to the 
Plan shall so state.

GRIFFIN, C. (dissenting) 

The application is one by The Bell Telephone Company to extend its Employees' 
Savings Plan to subsidiary companies. 

The application is made under the provisions of the Company's private Act and in 
particular under the provisions of section 2 of chapter 39 of the Statutes of Canada 
1957-58, 6 Elizabeth II, which reads as follows: 

"The Company shall not have power to make any issue, sale or other disposition 
of its capital stock, or any part thereof, without first obtaining the approval of 
the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada of the amount, terms and 
conditions of such issue, sale or other disposition of such capital stock. Subject 
to any applicable legislation relating to the issue, sale or disposition of securities 
by corporations, the issue, sale or other disposition of capital stock by the 
Company in accordance with such approval shall be legal and valid." 

Section 1 of the Company's Employees' Savings Plan dated July 1, 1966, reads 
as follows: 

"Any regular employee who as of March 31st has completed at least three 
months of net credited service with The Bell Telephone Company of Canada 
(hereinafter referred to as the Company) shall be eligible to apply for participation 
in this Employees' Savings Plan during any enrolment period." 

The Company asks the Committee to approve an amendment which would add 
after the words in brackets above "(hereinafter referred to as the Company)" the 
words "or certain of its subsidiary companies". 

It would be left to the Directors of the Company to designate what subsidiaries 
would be included but Counsel for the Company has given the assurance that it 
would include the subsidiary companies set out in Exhibit 2, which are:

At the present time there are approximately 38,000 employees in The Bell 
Telephone Company. The additional numbers of employees who would benefit from 
the Plan is set out in the exhibit above. The Company wishes to bring the extension of 
the Plan into effect by July 1st next. There would, therefore, be at that time some 
60,000 to 62,000 employees of the Company and its subsidiaries who would enjoy 
the benefits of the Plan. 

In essence the Plan permits an employee of the Company to subscribe for shares 
in an amount varying from 2% to 10%, inclusive, of the employee's wages or salary. 
He may reinvest the dividends from this stock in an amount of from 20% to 100% of 
the dividends received. These percentages may be varied by the Company but at the 
present time stand at 20% and 100% respectively. 

The employee subscribes for the shares upon the following terms as set out in 
section 5 of the Plan: 

"The purchase price per share of all stock issued in accordance with the 
provisions of this Plan shall be the lesser of 85% of the average market price for 

(a) the second calendar quarter of the year in which the payment period 

commenced, or 

(b) the second calendar quarter of the year in which the payment period 
was completed (or, when shares are issued before completion of a regular 
payment period, the three months prior to the month in which the final 
payment was made), 

provided that in no event shall the subscription price per share be less than par 
value. The average market price will be the simple average of the daily closing 
prices on the Montreal and Toronto Stock Exchanges." 

During the subscription period, the following provisions as to interest prevail: 

"Interest, compounded quarterly, shall be credited on all outstanding amounts 
deducted from pay or pension and/or arising from dividends assigned to the 
Company and, until otherwise determined by the Company, shall be at the rate 



58 R.T.C 



- 286- 



PAMPHLET NO. 9 



JUNE 1968 



of 6% per annum on amounts applied to the purchase of shares, or 5% per annum 
on cancellations and partial withdrawals." 

There are many other provisions but the above constitutes the essence of the 

Plan. 

The principal reasons advanced by the Company in support of its application 

are: 

1. That it will remove a feeling of discrimination which exists amongst employees 
of Northern Electric (and presumably employees of other subsidiaries), particu- 
larly as many employees of Northern Electric work side by side with employees 
of Bell. Moreover, there are a number of employees going from Bell to Northern 
Electric; upon such transition, they lose the entitlement to such benefit. 

2. It will assist recruitment. 

3. It is an additional provision for employees' security in that it adds to the 
benefits of the Company's pension plan. 

4. It results in a feeling of participation by the employees by achieving for them 
a part ownership in the company and promotes stability and sense of loyalty. 

5. It produces a considerable revenue internally and reduces the need for the 
Company to go on the market to that extent. This, the Company points out, 
is most beneficial at this time when the costs of money arc high. 

6. It is a common practice amongst corporations in Canada and the United 
States. The Company filed an exhibit listing some 45 Canadian companies 
of which 10 had such stock plans which were extended to subsidiaries. A 
corresponding listing for the United States showed some 71 Companies of 
which 52 had plans which were extended to subsidiaries. 

Counsel was asked specifically for his submissions in respect to the Committee's 
duties under the legislative provision referred to above. In the view of Counsel the 
Committee has no responsibility to the shareholders of the Company or to the 
employees of the Company, or its subsidiaries, but has its usual duty of considering 
how any proposal may affect the telephone subscribers. 

There could be various terms and conditions imported into the issuance of the 
stock of a company, which, though resulting in more ready recruitment of funds and, 
therefore, presumably in the interest of the subscribers or customers, would not 
necessarily be in the interest of the public generally. In my opinion, one must go 
further in this application and consider not only the interest of the telephone subscribers 
but also the public interest generally. 

In considering this, I have had thought to the following: 

(a) If the subsidiary companies' pension schemes are inadequate, then they 
should consider making them more beneficial. 

5 8 R.T.C, 



287 - 



PAMPHLET NO 9 



JUNE 1968 



(b) Although there may be a feeling of discrimination amongst certain employees, 
the difference that such a fringe benefit would confer is not such as to cause 
them to become inefficient or resenlful employees, or to cause the instability 
that results in persons leaving the Company's employ. It is not sufficient to 
cause difficulty in recruitment. 

(c) Once the Committee approves an extension to subsidiaries, then it is virtually 
irretractable and will probably have to be extended to any subsidiaries later 
acquired by Bell and to whom the Directors choose to extend it. At the present 
time New Brunswick Telephone Company is excluded as it has its own Stock 
Plan. The other companies that are referred to in the proceedings as being 
excluded are either such as have no employees or are subsidiaries of Northern 
Electric. 

The Employees' Savings Plan is such that it not only permits an employee of Bell 
to purchase at less than the market price of the shares but imports an option provision 
in that he may purchase at 85% of the lower of two average market prices (i.e., the 
second quarter of the year in which payment was begun, or the second quarter of the 
year in which payment was completed). The regular payment period begins on July 1 
and concludes on June 30 of the following year. There is, therefore, an option benefit 
of two average market prices which are twelve months apart. 

The Employees' Savings Plan was preceded by the Company's Employees' Stock 
Plan, which had been in effect, in some form, since 1920. I do no! question the 
propriety of the Company's present plan. I was a member of the panel of the Board 
of Transport Commissioners which heard the application by Bell to vary its Plan and 
which approved the provisions that are incorporated in the present Employees' Savings 
Plan. I do question, however, whether the extension of that plan to the employees of 
distinct and separate companies is in the public interest. 

Bell owns 100% of the shares of Northern Electric. If it wishes employees of 
Northern to have participation in the company by which they are employed, there is 
no reason of which I am aware why the shares of Northern should not be made 
available to the employees of Northern. I make the same observation in respect of 
Northern Telephone and its employees, and of Avalon and the employees of that 
company. 

Bell, however, is asking instead that some 24,000 employees of other companies 
(it is true that they are subsidiary companies) be brought in under the Bell Plan with 
the result that at present (and presumably in growing numbers) some 60,000 persons 
in Canada will have stock-purchase benefits, including options, not enjoyed generally 
by other residents of the country. 

Employees' Savings Plans or Stock Plans have a distinct purpose. The Bell Plan 
is, I think, of benefit to the company and to its employees, and to the extent that it 
generates an additional source of capital, and promotes harmony and efficiency in the 

58 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 9

conduct of the Company's affairs, is of benefit to the telephone subscribers. Such a plan 
should, however, in my view, be contained to its original purpose and intent. Once it is 
extended to other persons who by reason of being employees of subsidiary companies, 
or for some other reason, are deemed entitled to it, it can reach such proportions as to 
lose its original purpose and achieve the above advantages to the detriment of the 
public interest generally. In particular, it can create a discrimination in respect of other 
persons generally who, in exercising their right to acquire the same property, must take 
the full risk of purchasing shares on the open market at the then prevailing market price. 

Measured by assets, Bell is the largest investor-owned corporation in Canada. The 
dimension of the present application is more fully appreciated if one considers that the 
total employed civilian labour force in Canada (not including farm labour) is some 
6,658,000 persons. To grant this application would mean that, as of July 1st, one out 
of approximately 110 persons in the labour force would have the right to buy Bell 
shares at 15% below the market price, and under the option provisions referred to 
above. 

On the day of the hearing (April 4th), the closing market price of Bell shares 
on both the Toronto and Montreal stock exchanges was $44-1/8. The closing prices 
on the Toronto and Montreal exchanges at the end of the week preceding the date of 
this Judgment were $43-1/2 and $43-5/8, respectively. 

The book equity of Bell shares is approximately $40.00 per share. Should the 
market price of Bell shares remain approximately the same until June 30, it would 
mean that 60,000 to 62,000 persons would have the right to buy shares at somewhat 
below book equity. They would not only have this right on July 1st but would 
maintain the right during the whole period of subscription. In other words, they are 
assured of the right up to and until June 30, 1969. Should the average market price 
be less during April, May and June, 1969, they would have the further assurance of 
being able to buy at such lower average price. 

The terms of purchase (after the initial year for any new employee-subscribers) 
extends not only to the permissible participation by way of proportion of earnings but 
also to the reinvestment of dividends. 

I was one of the Members of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada 
who heard the previous application by the Company to extend the Plan to subsidiaries. 
On or prior to the earlier application, the opinions of Counsel were submitted as to the 
powers of Bell to extend its Plan to the employees of Northern. This matter was not 
raised in the present application and by reason of my finding it is not necessary for me 
to deal with it. 

In the Board's Judgment of February 18, 1966, (dealing with the previous 
application), we said: 

"We have not been persuaded that the "Employees' Savings Plan" should 
be extended to subsidiaires of the Company, but should the Company wish to 

58 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 9

have the matter reviewed by the whole Board it may so request and the Board will 
hear it at a time and place to be set." 

Mr. de Grandpre does not deem the present application as being by way of review 
but as being a new application to the Railway Transport Committee. 

Referring back to the wording of the earlier Judgment and after considering the 
testimony given at this hearing and the exhibits filed, I am still not persuaded that the 
"Employees' Savings Plan" should be extended to employees of subsidiary companies. 

I would dismiss the application.

BROCHURE N° 9 



JUIN 1968 



Le Regime d'epargne des employes, qui fait I'objet de cette requete, a ete approuve 
le 18 fevrier 1966 par l'ordonnance n° 120008, rendue par l'organisme qui existait alors, 
la Commission des transports du Canada. La requete presentee a cette epoque par la Com- 
pagnie avait en fait pour objet de demander l'autorisation de substituer le Regime 
d'epargne a l'ancien Plan de vente d'actions aux employes qui avait ete, sous diverses 
formes, en vigueur depuis 1922, et qui depuis 1929, 1'etait avec ('approbation de la 
Commission, alors que pour la premiere fois, le Parlement conferait co pouvoir a cette 
commission. La requete de fevrier 1966 demandait egalement l'autorisation d'etendre 
le Regime d'epargne aux filiales de la Compagnie, notamment a la Northern Electric 
Company Limited. Cette partie de la requete fut rejetee sans que les motifs en aient 
ete donnes, la Commission disant simplement dans son jugement: 

"On ne nous a pas convaincus que le Regime d'epargne des employes doive 
etre etendu aux filiales de la Compagnie, mais si la Compagnie desire que cette 
affaire soit examinee par toute la Commission, elle peut le demander et la 
Commission l'entendra a une date et en des lieux a determiner." 

II est a noter en passant que le jugement de la Commission auquel il est fait 
allusion fut rendu aprcs une audience publique au cours de laquelle la Compagnie 
apporta des preuves a 1'appui de ses dires. 

La requete actuelle a ete presentee au Comite le 12 mars 1968 et a l'audience 
publique qui suivit, tenue le 4 avril 1968, 1'Avocat-conseil de la Compagnie a indique 
que cette requete n'avait pas pour but dc demander la revision du jugement de 
fevrier 1966, mais qu'elle etait une requete entitlement nouvelle. 

En guise d'explication pour justifier la periode de plus de deux ans qui s'est 
ecoulee depuis le jugement de 1966 de la Commission des transports du Canada, 
TAvocat-conseil s'est refere aux tentatives de la Compagnie de faire revoquer par 
une modification de sa loi de constitution en societe, modification qui ne fut rejetee 
par le Parlement qu'au debut de cette annee, la disposition stipulant que remission, 
la vente ou autre alienation du capital social doivent etre autorisees par le Comite. 

En consequence, nous avons devant nous une nouvelle requete, appuyee de 
nouvelles preuves, en vue d'obtenir l'autorisation d'etendre le Regime d'epargne des 
employes aux filiales de la Compagnie, et nous avons traite cette requete comme telle. 

Par suite de la promulgation de la Loi nationale sur les transports, Statuts du 
Canada 1966-1967, chapitre 69, et des reglements generaux etablis en vertu de cette 
loi, le Comite des transports par chemin de fer de la Commission canadienne des 
transports a assume les pouvoirs qu'exercait precedemment l'ancienne Commission 
des transports du Canada. Dans le present cas, les pouvoirs du Comite sont conferes 
par Particle 2 du chapitre 39 des Statuls du Canada, 1957-1958, loi qui modifie la 
loi de constitution en societe de la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada: 

"2. La Compagnie n'aura le pouvoir de proceder a une emission, vente ou 
autre alienation de son capital social, ou de quelque partie de celui-ci, qu'apres 
avoir obtenu l'approbation, par la Commission des transports du Canada, du 

58 R.T.C.

JUIN 1968 



montant, des termes et des conditions de cette emission, vente ou autre alienation 
dudit capital social. Sous reserve de toute legislation applicable relative a remission, 
a la vente ou a l'alienation de valeurs par des corporations, 1'emission, la vente ou 
autre alienation du capital social, par la Compagnie, en conformite de cette 
approbation, est legale et valide." 

De toute evidence, la proposition d'etendre le Regime d'epargne aux employes des 
filiales releve de cet article. 

L'Avocat de la Compagnie a depose a titre de piece n° 1 un exemplaire de l'actuel 
Regime d'epargne des employes, lequel ne s'applique pour l'instant qu'aux seuls employes 
de la Compagnie. L'article l er du plan stipule que: 

"Tout employe permanent qui, au 31 mars, compte a son credit au moins trois 
mois de service net a la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada (ci-apres designee 
la compagnie) peut, au cours de toute periode description, presenter une demande 
de participation au present Regime d'epargne des employes." 

Afin d'etendre le Regime a ses filiales, la Compagnie se propose de modifier l'article l er 
en y ajoutant apres les mots "(ci-apres designee la compagnie)" les mots "ou certaines de 
ses filiales". C'est cette modification que la Compagnie demande au Comite d'approuver. 
C'est le seul changement ou modification qu'elle demande d'apporter au Regime. 

Bien que nous admettions que le principe d'etendre le droit de participation au 
Regime en sa forme actuelle aux employes des filiales est sain et qu'il doive etre 
approuve, nous ne pouvons consentir a accorder un elargissement du Regime en des 
termes aussi generaux. 

La Compagnie a indique que des qu'elle aurait obtenu notre approbation, elle 
etendrait immediatement le Regime aux filiales enumerees dans la piece n° 2:

Lors du depot de la piece n° 2, on a demande a M. de Grandpre si la Compagnie 
cherchait a obtenir de nous l'autorisation d'etendre la participation au Regime a toutes 
les filiales actuelles ou futures, ou si la requete etait limitee aux filiales enumerees dans 
la piece n° 2, dont la liste est donnee ci-dessus. La reponse de M. de Grandpre a ete la 
suivante: 

"Je vais essayer de preciser la position de la Compagnie. La Compagnie, si la 
requete est accordee, s'engage a etendre la participation au Regime aux filiales qui 
sont enumerees dans la piece n° 2. Voila pour le proche avenir, mais, evidemment, 
il est possible que nous achetions d'autres compagnies, a l'avenir, ou nous aurions 
cinq, dix, quinze, vingt-cinq employes. Et nous avons besoin d'une certaine liberte 
d' action. Nous ne pouvons pour l'avenir les maintenir dans une situation rigide." 

On nous a explique que les reglements de la Compagnie, qui ont recu des action- 
naires l'approbation exigee, donnaient en toutes lettres au conseil d'administration de 
la Compagnie le pouvoir d'emettre, de vendre ou d'aliener des actions a toute personne, 
y compris les employes de la Compagnie ou de ses filiales. De fait, le conseil d'adminis- 
tration a l'intention, si nous approuvons la requete dans la forme sous laquelle elle a 
ete presentee, de declarer immediatement que les employes des filiales enumerees dans 
la piece n° 2 sont admissibles au Regime d'epargne des employes et de proceder de la 
meme facon en ce qui concerne les filiales dont elle pourrait faire l'acquisition a une 
date ulterieure, mais sans en referer a nouveau au Comite. C'est a notre avis, l'interpre- 
tation correcte qui doit etre faite de la declaration de M. de Grandpre que nous venons 
de reproduire. 

L' article 2 du chapitre 39 des Statu ts du Canada 1957-1958, qui modifie la loi 
de constitution en societe de la Compagnie, ne doit pas etre interprets dans un sens 
aussi large. Ce qu'il demande au Comite d'examiner et d'approuver est le montant, les 
termes et les conditions de " . . . toute emission, vente ou autre alienation . . ." du 
capital social de la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada. Nous estimons que le 
libelle de l'article envisage l'extension du Regime d'epargne des employes de la 
Compagnie aux employes des filiales qui appartiennent actuellement a la Compagnie 
ou qui sont controlees par elle. Mais nous ne pouvons, d'avance, approuver l'extension 
du Regime aux compagnies dont la Compagnie de telephone Bell pourra faire l'acquisition 
dans l'avenir. Chaque cas doit etre juge au fond, et toute extension du Regime d'epargne 
aux employes de compagnies acquises dans l'avenir devra faire l'objet d'une requete 
distincte. En juger autrement serait, a notre avis, renoncer a nos prerogatives. 

L'extension du Regime d'epargne aux employes des filiales enumerees dans la 
piece n° 2 fera qu'environ 24,370 personnes de plus auront les qualites requises pour 
acheter des actions de la Compagnie de telephone Bell aux termes et conditions du 
Regime. Etant donne qu'environ 38,000 employes de la Compagnie ont deja les 
qualites requises pour en acheter en vertu du Regime, si nous approuvons cette requete, 
nous ouvrirons la porte a environ 62,000 personnes en tout.

Un des vice-presidents executifs de la Compagnie, M. A.J. Groleau, a ete appele et 
nous a fourni des precisions. II a decrit le fonctionnenient actuel du Regime et nous a 
indique comment il s'appliquerait aux employes des filiales si Fextension etait accordee. 

Le Regime d'epargne vise essentiellement a inciter les employes a economiser une 
partie de leurs revenus pendant qu'ils travaillent a la Compagnie, et a leur permettre de 
devenir en partie proprietaries de l'affaire. M. Groleau a estime que cette formule donnait 
aux employes le sentiment de participer davantage a Factivite de la Compagnie et, ce qui 
est plus important du point de vue de Femploye, qu'elle leur procurait un supplement de 
revenus au moment de leur retraite et la securite que donne un capital valable dont la 
valeur augmente. 

Du point de vue de la Compagnie, le Regime d'epargne des employes constitue une 
importante source de capital-actions que la Compagnie aurait, si le Regime n'existe pas, 
a trouver ailleurs a un cout plus eleve et dans des conditions moins favorables. Autre 
avantage pour la Compagnie: les versements des employes au Regime sont effectues 
deux fois par mois, a chaque paye, ce qui permet des mouvements de la tresorerie 
reguliers et previsibles. 

Au cours de la derniere annee financiere de la Compagnie, qui s'est terminee le 
31 decembre 1967, les employes de la Compagnie de telephone Bell qui participent au 
Regime ont achete 563,000 actions et un produit net de $21,367,000 a ete mis a la 
disposition de la Compagnie. Le programme de construction de la Compagnie pour 
1967 a coute $313,000,000 et les previsions pour 1968 et 1969 sont respectivement 
de $317,000,000 et de $333,000,000. La plus grande partie de cet argent sera produite 
a Finterieur de la Compagnie, mais le montant estimatif du capital supplemental 
necessaire pour realiser ce programme sera de $125,000,000 pour 1968 et de 
$131,000,000 pour 1969. La Compagnie souhaite vivement conserver un rapport prudent 
entre le passif et l'actif lorsqu'elle emet des titres, et dans ces conditions le capital- 
actions qui provient du Regime d'epargne des employes constitue un montant important 
par rapport aux fonds que la Compagnie doit se procurer sur le marche public des 
capitaux. 

Des etudes effectuees par la Compagnie ainsi que par les conseillers techniques du 
Comite revelent que, sur les 38,000 employes de la Compagnie de telephone Bell 
admissibles au Regime, environ 25,000 (pres de 65%) y adheraient a la fin de 1967. 
Comme nous l'avons indique, cette participation a donne un produit net de $22,000,000. 
Nous avons calcule, en nous fondant sur les renseignements mis a notre disposition, que 
Fextension du Regime d'epargne aux employes des Filiales enumerees dans la piece 
n° 2 produirait un supplement de $13,000,000 dans les annees futures, dans Fhypothese 
que 65% des employes admissibles des filiales participent au Regime. Si Fon ajoute cette 
somme au produit net des achats effectues par les employes de la Compagnie de 
telephone Bell, il est possible de prevoir un capital disponible provenant du Regime 
d'epargne des employes, de Fordre de $35,000,000. Ce chiffre constitue plus de 10 p. 
100 des besoins estimatifs annuels de capitaux de la Compagnie pour realiser son 
programme de construction en 1968 et en 1969.

La Compagnie a produit de nombreux documents qui demontrent une acceptation 
tres repandue des regimes de participation des employes au capital social au Canada et 
aux Etats-Unis. On a examine les compagnies du Canada les plus importantes dans le 
domaine de la fabrication, de 1'exploitation des ressources, des services publics et du 
negoce. Sur les 45 compagnies canadiennes enumerees, 13 d'entre elles avaient des 
regimes d'epargne pour leurs employes, et sur ce nombre, une n'avait pas de filiale. 
(La British Columbia Telephone Co. participe au regime de sa maison mere). Sur 
les 12 compagnies, seulement deux ne font pas participer leurs filiales a leur regime, 
et Tune d'elles est la Compagnie de telephone Bell. 

Les renseignements mis a la disposition du Comite en ce qui concerne les 
Etats-Unis indiquent que sur les 71 grandes compagnies americaines dotees d'un 
regime, 17 ne doivent pas etre prises en consideration, soit parce qu'elles n'ont pas 
de filiales, soit en raison de l'insuffisance des renseignements. Sur les 54 compagnies 
restantes, 52 font participer leurs filiales a leur regime. Sur ces 52 compagnies, 11 sont 
des services publics qui sont soumis a une reglementation quelconque et, dans aucun 
cas, l'autorisation d'un tribunal investi d'un pouvoir de reglementation n'est exigee 
pour la participation de leurs filiales a leur regime, bien que dans cinq cas la constitution 
du plan de vente d'actions proprement dit ait du etre soumise a l'approbation d'un 
organisme investi d'un pouvoir de reglementation. 

Lors de l'examen de cette requete, nous avons recu une assurance raisonnable que 
le Regime, sous reserve d'admissibilite, est actuellement a la disposition de tous les 
employes de la Bell, et que des l'approbation de cetle requete, il sera de la meme facon 
a la disposition de tous les employes des filiales designees. Nous n'avons pu obtenir de 
renseignements sur les echelles de salaires, mais la Compagnie nous a fourni des 
renseignements sur le pourcentage de participation au Regime en fonction des annees 
de service. Ces renseignements sont reproduits dans le tableau suivant:

Le pourcentage augmente avec le nombre d'annees de service pour atteindre 90% apres 
25 ans. 

II y a tout lieu de supposer, ainsi que la Compagnie nous Fa affirme, que la 
participation des employes des filiales sera du meme ordre lorsque le Regime sera 
mis a leur disposition, notamment en ce qui concerne la Northern Electric Company 
Limited. 

De fait, Tune des raisons invoquees par la Compagnie a l'appui de sa demande 
d'approbation de Fextension du Regime, est le fait que cette approbation permettrait 
de mettre un terme au vif ressentiment qui existerait au sujet de la disparite de traitement 
entre les employes de la Bell et ceux des filiales qui travaillent ensemble en grand nombre 
et qui sont frequemment mutes entre la Compagnie et ses filiales. M. Groleau alia jusqu'a 
nous affirmer qu'il avait personnellement la preuve que ce ressentiment existait, et que 
Fimpossibilite dans laquelle les employes des filiales se trouvaient de participer au 
Regime constituait un element important lors des negotiations collectives. 

Un avis de la requete et de l'audience a ete publie dans la Gazette du Canada et 
dans les journaux aussi bien en Ontario que dans le Quebec. Un avis a egalement ete 
adresse au directeur des enquetes et des recherches en vertu de la Loi relative aux 
enquetes sur les coalitions. Personne n'a fait opposition a Faudience, et aucun document 
ni aucune opposition n'ont ete recu par le Comite. M. Raymond Rock et M. Rene Emard, 
tous deux deputes, se sont presentes en personne a Faudience pour appuyer la requete. 

L'obligation statutaire qui incombe au Comite consiste a examiner la quantite, les 
termes et les conditions de toute emission, vente ou autre alienation du capital social de 
la Compagnie, en premier lieu dans Finteret des abonnes au telephone. Les montants 
considerables de capitaux que Fextension du Regime aux filiales procurera a la Compa- 
gnie pour lui permettre de realiser ses futurs programmes de construction, constituent un 
avantage pour les abonnes dans la mesure ou il reduit le volume d'appel de capitaux a 
effectuer par Femission d'obligations ou par Femission d'actions offertes sur le marche 
des souscriptions. 

Nous estimons egalement que Fapprobation de la requete sera avantageuse pour la 
Compagnie, pour ses filiales et pour ses employes, pour les raisons invoquees par les repre- 
sentants de la Compagnie qui ont comparu a Faudience, raisons que nous avons discutees 
tout au long de ce jugement. Nous ne sommes pas convaincus que la loi nous oblige a etu- 
dier plus a fond les interets des actionnaires en general de la Compagnie de telephone Bell, 
dont la participation aux emissions d'actions sera quelque peu reduite par suite de la plus 
grande participation des employes a ces emissions. Nous tenons toutefois a faire remarquer 
que le Regime d'epargne des employes, ainsi que les regimes qui Font precede, ont ete 
appliques avec Fapprobation des actionnaires depuis 1922, et avec celle de la Commission 
depuis 1929, et que Fextension du Regime d'epargne actuel aux employes des filiales est 
prevue dans les reglements de la Compagnie, lesquels ont eux-memes ete approuves par 
les actionnaires, et que le prix auquel les actions sont offertes aux employes est 
normalement, en pourcentage, de plusieurs points plus eleve que le prix des actions

GRIFFIN, commissaire (dissident) 

II s'agit d'une requete de la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada visant a etendre 
son Regime d'epargne des employes a des filiales. 

Cette requete est presentee en vertu des dispositions de la loi particuliere de cette 
compagnie et en particulier en vertu des dispositions de Particle 2 du chapitre 39 des 
Statuts revises du Canada 1957-1958, 6 Elisabeth II, qui se lit ainsi: 

"La Compagnie n'aura le pouvoir de proceder a une emission, vente ou autre 
alienation de son capital social, ou de quelque partie de celui-ci, qu'apres avoir 
obtenu l'approbation, par la Commission des transports du Canada, du montant, 
des termes et des conditions de cette emission, vente ou autre alienation dudit 
capital social. Sous reserve de toute legislation applicable relative a 1'emission, a la 
vente ou a l'alienation de valeurs par des corporations, remission, la vente ou autre 
alienation du capital social, par la Compagnie, en conformite de cette approbation, 
est legale et valide." 

L'article l er du Regime d'epargne des employes de la Compagnie, date du l er 
juillet 1966, se lit ainsi: 

"Tout employe permanent qui, au 31 mars, compte a son credit au moins trois 
mois de service net a la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada (ci-apres designee 
la compagnie) peut, au cours de toute periode d'inscription, presenter une demande 
de participation au present regime d'epargne des employes." 

La Compagnie demande au Comite d'approuver une modification qui ajouterait, 
apres les mots entre parentheses ci-dessus "(ci-apres designee la compagnie)", les mots 
"ou certaines de ses filiales". 

On laisserait au conseil d'administration de la Compagnie le soin de designer les 
filiales qui seraient comprises mais l'avocat de la Compagnie a donne l'assurance que 
les filiales comprises seraient celles qui sont enumerees dans la piece n° 2, a savoir:

♦Acquisition faite en mars 1968'" 

A 1'heure actuelle, la Compagnie de telephone Bell du Canada compte environ 
38,000 employes. Le nombre des nouveaux employes qui profiteraient du Regime est 
donne dans la piece reproduite ci-dessus. La Compagnie desire mettre en vigueur le 
regime ainsi etendu, a compter du l er juillet prochain. Par consequent, a cette date, 
quelque 60,000 a 62,000 employes de la Compagnie et de ses filiales jouiraient des 
avantages du Regime. 

Essentiellement, le Regime permet a un employe de la Compagnie de souscrire a 
des actions pour un montant variant entre 2 et 10 p. 100, inclusivement, de son 
salaire ou traitement. L'employe peut replacer dans de nouvelles actions de 20 a 100 
p. 100 du montant des dividendes recus de ces actions. La Compagnie peut faire varier ces 
pourcentages mais, a 1'heure actuelle, ils sont respectivement de 20 et de 100 p. 100. 

L'employe souscrit aux actions aux conditions suivantes, enoncees a l'article 5 
du Regime: 

"Le cout de toute action emise conformement aux dispositions de ce regime 
sera le moindre de 85 pour cent du prix moyen du marche durant 

(a) le deuxieme trimestre de 1'annee ou la periode de paiement a commence, ou 

(b) le deuxieme trimestre de 1'annee ou la periode de paiement s'est terminee 
(ou durant les trois mois precedant le mois ou le dernier paiement a ete 
effectue s'il s'agit d'actions emises avant la fin d'une periode normale de paie- 
ment), 

pourvu qu'en aucun cas le cout d'une action soit moindre que la valeur au pair. Le 
prix moyen du marche sera la moyenne simple des cours de cloture quotidiens 
des bourses de Montreal et de Toronto.'* 

Pendant la periode de souscription, les dispositions suivantes s'appliquent en ce 
qui concerne les interets: 

"Un interet compose, calcule trimestriellement, sera credite sur toutes les 
sommes courantes prelevees sur le salaire ou sur la pension, ou provenant des 
dividendes cedes a la compagnie; cet interet sera, a moins d'indication con- 
traire par la compagnie, de 6 pour cent par annee s'il s'agit de sommes applicables 



58 R.T.C. 



- 302 - 



BROCHURE No 9 



JUIN 1968 



a 1'achat (Tactions actuellement livrees, ou de 5 pour cent par annee s'il s'agit de 
resiliation ou de retraits partiels." 

Le Regime compte bien d'autres dispositions mais celles-la sont ses dispositions 
essentielles. 

Les principales raisons donnees par la Compagnie a Tappui de sa demande sont 
les suivantes: 

1. Cette modification fera disparaftre le sentiment de disparite de traitement qui 
existe chez les employes de la Northern Electric (et probablement chez les 
employes des autres filiales), surtout parce que beaucoup d'employes de la 
Northern Electric travaillent cote a cote avec des employes de la Bell. En 
outre, un certain nombre d'employes passent de la Bell a la Northern Electric, 
en le faisant, ils perdent le droit a cet avantage. 

2. Elle aidera au recrutement. 

3. Elle constitue une disposition supplementaire pour la securite des employes en 
ce sens qu'elle ajoute aux prestations du regime de pension de la Compagnie. 

4. Elle donne aux employes un sentiment de participation en leur obtenant une 
propriete partielle de la compagnie et encourage la stabilite et le sens de la 
loyaute. 

5. Elle produit des recettes internes considerables et reduit, dans cette mesure, le 
besoin pour la Compagnie de recourir au marche. Cette mesure est des plus 
avantageuses a l'heure actuelle, alors que le prix de l'argent est eleve. 

6. C'est la pratique habituellement suivie chez les grandes societes du Canada et 
des Etats-Unis. La Compagnie a depose une piece donnant une liste de 45 
compagnies canadiennes dont dix ont des regimes de vente d'actions qui ont 
ete etendus a leurs filiales. Une liste correspondante pour les Etats-Unis, 
comprenant quelque 71 compagnies, montre que 52 d'entre elles ont des 
regimes auxquels participent leurs filiales. 

On a demande specifiquement a 1'avocat de presenter ses remarques au sujet des 
attributions du Comite en vertu de la disposition legislative mentionnee ci-dessus. Selon 
l'avocat, le Comite n'a aucune responsabilite a 1'egard des actionnaires de la Compagnie 
ou de ses employes, ou de ses filiales, mais il a, comme d'habitude, le devoir de tenir 
compte de la facon dont une proposition pourrait toucher les abonnes au telephone. 

II serait possible d'introduire, pour remission des actions d'une compagnie, 
certains termes et conditions qui, bien que facilitant le recrutement de fonds et, par 
consequent, dans l'interet des abonnes ou clients, ne soient pas dans l'interet du public 
en general. 

En reflechissant sur ce sujet, les pensees suivantes me sont venues: 

a) Si les regimes de pension des filiales ne sont pas suffisants, alors on devrait 
etudier le moyen de les rendre plus avantageux. 

58 R.T.C. 



- 303 - 



I 



BROCHURE No 9 JUIN 1968 

b) Bien qu'il puisse exister un sentiment de disparite de traitement chez certains 
employes, la difference qu'apporterait un tel avantage accessoire n'est pas 
assez importante pour rendre ces employes incompetents ou les froisser, ou 
pour causer une instabilite pouvant porter des personnes a quitter leur emploi. 
Elle n'est pas suffisante pour nuire au recrutement. 

c) Une fois que le Comite aura approuve l'extension du regime a des filiales, il 
sera pratiquement impossible de retirer cette concession et ellc devra probable- 
ment etre accordee aux filiales dont la Bell pourra plus tard faire l'acquisition 
et que le Conseil d'administration pourra decider de faire participer. Actuelle- 
ment, la New Brunswick Telephone Company est exclue, vu qu'elle possede 
son propre regime de vente d'actions. Les autres compagnies mentionnees dans 
les deliberations comme etant exclues sont, soit celles qui n'ont pas d'employes, 
soit des filiales de la Northern Electric. 

Le Regime d'epargne des employes non seulement permet a un employe de la Bell 
d'acheter des actions a un prix inferieur a celui du marche mais comprend une disposition 
comportant une option lui permettant d'acheter a un taux de 85 p. 100 du moins eleve de 
deux prix moyens du marche (e'est-a-dire soit celui du deuxieme trimestre de l'annee au 
cours de laquelle le paiement a debute, soit celui du deuxieme trimestre de l'annee au 
cours de laquelle le paiement s'est termine). La periode ordinaire de paiement commence 
le l er juillet et se termine le 30 juin de l'annee suivante. L'employe a, par consequent, 
1'avantage de pouvoir choisir entre deux prix moyens du marche etablis a douze mois 
d'intervalle. 

Le Regime d'epargne des employes a succede au Plan de vente d'actions aux 
employes de la Compagnie, qui avait ete en vigueur, sous une forme quelconque, depuis 
1920. Je ne mets pas en doute l'a-propos du regime actuel de la Compagnie. Je faisais 
partie du jury de la Commission des transports du Canada qui a entendu la requete de 
la Bell visant a modifier son Regime et qui a approuve les dispositions que comprend 
factuel Regime d'epargne des employes. Je me demande, toutefois, si l'extension de 
ce regime aux employes de compagnies distinctes et separees est dans l'interet du public. 

La Bell possede 100 p. 100 des actions de la Northern Electric. Si elle desire que 
les employes de la Northern participent a la compagnie qui les emploie, il n'existe, a 
ma connaissance, aucune raison pour que les actions de la Northern ne soient pas mises 
a la disposition de ces employes. Les memes observations valent a l'egard de la Northern 
Telephone et de ses employes et de VAvalon et de ses employes. 

Cependant, la Bell demande, au lieu de cela, que quelque 24,000 employes 
d'autres compagnies (il est vrai que ce sont des filiales) soient soumis au Regime de la 
Bell avec le resultat qu'a l'heure actuelle (et probablement en nombres croissants) 
quelque 60,000 personnes au Canada jouiront d'avantages pour l'achat d'actions, y 
compris des options, dont ne jouissent pas, en general, les autres residants du pays. 

Les regimes d'epargne des employes ou regimes de vente d'actions aux employes 
ont un but bien distinct. Le Regime de la Bell offre, je crois, des avantages a cette 

58 R.T.C. 



304 - 



BROCHURE No 9 



JUIN 1968 



compagnie et a ses employes et, dans la mesure ou il constitue une source supplemental 
de capitaux et ou il favorise rharmonie et l'efficacite dans la conduite des affaires de la 
Compagnie, il offre des avantages aux abonnes du telephone. Un tel regime devrait 
cependant, a mon avis, etre limite a son objet ou but premier. Une fois etendu a d'autres 
personnes qui, du fait de leur emploi par des filiales ou pour d'autres raisons, sont 
censees y avoir droit, il pourrait atteindre des proportions qui lui fassent perdre son but 
premier et realiser les avantages susmentionnes au detriment de l'interet du public en 
general. En particulier, il pourrait creer une distinction injuste a l'egard d'autres personnes 
en general qui en exercant leur droit d'acquerir les memes biens, doivent assumer tous 
les risques que comporte l'achat d'actions sur le marche libre au prix courant du marche. 

Du point de vue des avoirs, la Bell est la plus grande societe a actionnaires du 
Canada. On se rend mieux compte de l'importance de cette requete si Ton considere 
que la main-d'oeuvre civile employee au Canada comprend en tout (la main-d'oeuvre 
agricole non comprise) quelque 6,658,000 personnes. Si cette requete etait admise, cela 
voudrait dire qu'au l er juillet, une personne de la main-d'oeuvre sur environ 110 aurait 
le droit d'acheter des actions de la Bell a un prix de 15 p. 100 inferieur a celui du 
marche, et aux conditions des options mentionnees ci-dessus. 

Le jour de l'audience (le 4 avril), a la fermeture, aux bourses de Toronto et de 
Montreal, le prix des actions de la Bell etait de $44 1/8. A ces memes bourses, a la fin 
de la semaine qui a precede la date du present jugement, les prix de ces actions etaient, 
a la fermeture, respectivement de $43 1/2 et de $43 5/8. 

La valeur comptable des actions de la Bell est d'environ $40 par action. Si le prix 
du marche des actions de la Bell demeurait a peu pres le meme jusqu'au 30 juin, cela 
signiflerait que de 60,000 a 62,000 personnes auraient le droit d'acheter des actions a 
un prix un peu inferieur a la valeur comptable. Non seulement elles auraient ce droit le 
l er juillet mais elles le conserveraient pendant toute la periode de souscription. En 
d'autres termes, ce droit leur est assure jusqu'au 30 juin 1969. Si le prix moyen du 
marche venait a etre plus bas pendant avril, mai et juin 1969, elles seraient en plus 
assurees de pouvoir acheter a ce prix moyen plus bas. 

Les conditions d'achat (apres l'annee initiale pour tout nouvel employe souscrip- 
teur) s'etendent non seulement a la participation admissible selon un certain pourcentage 
du salaire mais aussi au replacement des dividendes. 

Je suis l'un des membres de la Commission des transports du Canada qui a entendu 
la requete precedente de la Compagnie au sujet de l'extension du Regime aux filiales. 
Lors de la requete anterieure, ou anterieurement, l'avis de l'avocat-conseil a ete presente 
au sujet du pouvoir de la Bell d'etendre son regime aux employes de la Northern. Cette 
question n'a pas ete soulevee dans la requete actuelle et, par suite de mes conclusions, 
il n'est pas necessaire que j'en traite. 

Dans le jugement de la Commission en date du 18 fevrier 1966, qui traite de la 
requete precedente, nous avons dit:

Commission l'entendra a une date et en des lieux a determiner." 

M. de Grandpre ne considere pas la requete actuelle comme une demande de 
revision mais plutot comme une nouvelle requete adressee au Comite des transports par 
chemin de fer. 

Je me reporte au libelle du jugement anterieuret, apres etude des depositions faites

JUDGMENT 



RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 



WOODARD, C. 

The application from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (hereinafter referred 
to as the "Railway") to remove agents, caretaker-agents and caretakers on its Regina 
Division, coincidental with the inauguration of a Customer Service Centre at Regina, is 
dated May 16, 1967. At the same time the Railway furnished copies of its application to 
all the municipalities concerned, Members of Parliament and Members of the Legislative 
Assembly of Saskatchewan in the area affected. With the application furnished to the 
above was advice that any submissions, either supporting or opposing the proposed plan, 



58 R.T.C. 



-309- 



PAMPHLET NO. 10 



JUNE 1968 



should be sent to the Secretary of the Board of Transport Commissioners, Ottawa, and a 
request that copies of any such submissions be sent to the Railway. 

During the ensuing months many submissions were received by the Board, showing 
either opposition to the proposed plan, or registering no objection to the plan as 
submitted. In the fall of 1967, the District Inspector at Saskatoon was directed by this 
Committee to conduct a thorough review, by way of meetings in each locality with local 
authorities and shippers to determine the effect the proposed plan would have on users of 
the Railway services. Following this review, the Inspector reported his findings to the 
Committee. 

On January 8, 1968, the Railway, for the purpose of disseminating information to 
their customers regarding the proposed plan, sent a team of officers into the area to meet 
with the people. Thirty-nine meetings were held at various locations, 477 people 
representing municipal, business and other organizations were contacted, and 243 
businessmen were interviewed at their business locations. At about the same time almost 
1,000 letters of explanation were sent to carload and Canadian Pacific Merchandise 
Service customers. Advertisements were placed in the Regina Leader Post and in all the 
rural weekly newspapers. 

On March 11, 1968, the Railway Transport Committee sent out to all interested 
parties shown on its files and to any others who had received copies of the Railway's 
application, notice that a public hearing would be held on Monday, April 22, 1968, in the 
Council Chamber at City Hall, Regina. 

In his opening statement at the hearing Mr. V.F. Burstall, Counsel for the Railway, 
asked to make two small amendments to the application of May 16, 1967. This request 
was acceded to, and the resultant amended application was for the removal of 43 agents, 
9 caretaker-agents and 19 caretakers. The application as amended is what will be dealt 
with in this Judgment. 

Description of Proposed Customer Service Plan: 

The plan proposed by the Railway on the Regina Division is identical with similar 
plans being inaugurated on the Trenton Division and in South Edmonton, and proposed 
for the Calgary Division, i.e., a Customer Service Centre with which all patrons of the 
Railway can communicate by means of a toll-free Zenith telephone number. The 
switchboard at the centre would be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and would 
place with various experts in their field, calls relating to rate matters, ordering or placing 
of cars, information re shipments, telegraph messages, train or hotel reservations, etc. All 
waybilling and other types of accounting, rather than being done by station agents as at 
present, would be done by staff in the centre. 

In the field of express and L.C.L. traffic, all of this is now being handled by truck 
on the Regina Division. It will continue to be handled in this manner, but the billing and 
collecting will now be done in the Customer Service Centre, and rather than the station 
being the drop-off point for shipments for delivery, the trucking service, whether 

58 R.T.C. 



-310- 



PAMPHLET NO. 10 



JUNE 1968 



Canadian Pacific Merchandise Service, contract carrier, or interline carrier, will provide its 
own facilities. 

To serve as contact men between the Railway and its customers, it is proposed that 
10 mobile representatives would be appointed to serve the area. Each mobile 
representative would travel specific routes by automobile each day, contacting customers, 
adjusting complaints, and, in short seeing that his customers receive adequate service for 
merchandise or carload traffic, or for any other of the railway services. It is estimated 
that each of these representatives would be required to travel an average of 108 miles per 
day, in addition to his contact work. The Railway is confident that this amount of road 
mileage is not excessive, but assured the Committee that if it were found that the 
customers were not getting adequate service because of time lost by the mobile 
representatives in travelling, immediate steps would be taken to add to the number of 
representatives in the area. 

Discussions and Conclusions: 

At the hearing held on April 22, no community, business organization or shipper 
appeared in opposition to the Railway's application. As before stated, communities and 
organizations had registered written opposition with the Committee during the first few 
months after receipt of the Railway's application, but the total lack of any protests at the 
hearing had led this Committee to conclude that the team of officers sent into the area by 
the Railway, has done an exemplary job of informing and educating its customers 
concerning the changes that the proposed plan would bring about. 

Because of this conclusion supported by the total lack of opposition at the hearing, 
and the evidence that the proposed Customer Service Centre Plan on the Regina Division 
is virtually identical with other plans which the Committee has earlier approved, I would 
grant the application of Canadian Pacific Railway Company. 

Of continuing concern to me is the role played by the Mobile Representatives in the 
proposed Plan, particularly in the territories allotted to them, the miles to be travelled 
each day, and the number of contacts to be made to ensure good and adequate service to 
all customers. I would remind the Railway of its assurance to the Committee that this 
portion of the proposed Plan will be kept under continuing review, to ensure adequate 
service to the users of the Railway facilities. 

I would grant the application of Canadian Pacific Railway Company to remove 43 
agents, 9 caretaker-agents and 19 caretakers on its Regina Division, and to substitute 
therefor The Customer Service Centre Plan comprised in the application, as amplified at 
the Hearing in Regina. 

An Order will issue accordingly.

RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 
JUDGMENT 

WOODARD, C. 

The original application from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (hereinafter 
referred to as the "Railway") to remove 41 agents on its Medicine Hat Division, 
coincidental with the inauguration of a Customer Service Centre at Medicine Hat, is dated 
June 22, 1967. At the same time the Railway furnished copies of this application to all 
the municipalities concerned, Members of Parliament and Members of the Legislative 
Assembly of Alberta in the area affected. With the application furnished to the above was 
advice that any submissions, either supporting or opposing the proposed plan, should be 
sent to the Secretary of the Board of Transport Commissioners, Ottawa, and a request 
that copies of any such submissions be sent to the Railway. On February 28, 1968, the 
Railway wrote to the Railway Transport Committee (successor to the Board of Transport 
Commissioners) requesting leave to amend its application of June 22, 1967, to provide 
for the removal of caretakers at 1 5 additional points. This amending application was also 
furnished to all parties who had received a copy of the original application and to any 
communities who had not been affected previously and had not received a copy of the 
original application. 

During the months ensuing the date of the original application, many submissions 
were received by the Board, and latterly the Railway Transport Committee, showing 
either opposition to the proposed plan or registering no objection to the plan as 
submitted. In late 1967 the District Inspector at Calgary was directed by this Committee 
to conduct a thorough review, by way of meetings in each locality with local authorities 
and shippers to determine the effect the proposed plan would have on users of the 
Railway services. Following this review, the Inspector reported his findings to the 
Committee. 

Commencing in mid-December the Railway, for the purpose of disseminating 
information to its customers regarding the proposed plan, sent a team of officers into the 
area to meet with the people. Between that time and the last week of April 1968, 112 
meetings were held with customers, municipal, business and other organizations. Letters 
of explanation were sent to carload and Canadian Pacific Merchandise Service customers. 
Advertisements were placed in all daily and rural weekly newspapers serving the area. 

On March 11, 1968, the Railway Transport Committee sent out to all interested 
parties shown on its files, and to any others who had received copies of the Railway's 
application, notice that a public hearing would be held on Monday, April 29, 1968, in the 
Court House, Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Description of Proposed Customer Service Plan: 

At the hearing held in Medicine Hat, the Railway through its witnesses, outlined the 
proposed Customer Service Plan for the Medicine Hat Division. The plan is basically 
identical with plans now being inaugurated on the Trenton Division and in South 
Edmonton, and proposed for the Calgary and Regina Divisions, i.e., a Customer Service 
Centre with which all patrons of the Railway can communicate by means of a toll-free 
Zenith telephone number. The switchboard at the centre would be staffed 24 hours a 
day, 7 days a week, and would place with various experts in their field, calls relating to 
rate matters, ordering or placing of cars, information re shipments, telegraph messages, 
train or hotel reservations, etc. All waybilling and other types of accounting, rather than 
being done by station agents as at present, would be done by staff in the centre. 

In the field of express and L.C.L. traffic, all of this is now being handled by truck 
on the Medicine Hat Division. It will continue to be handled in this manner, but the 
billing and collecting will now be done in the Customer Service Centre, and rather than 
the station being the drop-off point for shipments for delivery, the trucking service, 
whether Canadian Pacific Merchandise Service, contract carrier, or interline carrier, will 
provide its own facilities. 

To serve as contact men between the Railway and its customers, it is proposed that 
6 mobile representatives would be appointed to serve the area. Each mobile representative 
would travel specific routes by automobile each day, contacting customers, adjusting 
complaints, and, in short seeing that his customers receive adequate service for 
merchandise or carload traffic, or for any other of the railway services. It is estimated 
that each of these representatives would be required to travel an average of 144 miles 
per day, in addition to his contact work. The Railway is confident that this amount of 
road mileage is not excessive, but assured the Committee that if it were found that the 
customers were not getting adequate service because of time lost by the mobile 
representatives in travelling, immediate steps would be taken to add to the number of 
representatives in the area. 

Opposition to the Application: 

The Board of Trade of the Town of Leader, expressed a fear that the Railway's 
proposal is "a foot in the door" to the eventual abandonment of all service to their area, 
contrary to the commitments made in the agreement between the Government of Canada 
and the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1 881 . 

The Town of Maple Creek, and the Maple Creek Chamber of Commerce, in separate 
submissions, were of one opinion that the inauguration of the Railway's proposal would 
effect the economic development of rural areas and expressed a lack of conviction that 
the result would be an improvement in service. Under cross-examination, the above 
groups opposing the application, admitted that they knew nothing of the results of the 
similar Customer Service Centre at Lethbridge which had been in operation for some two 



58 R.T.C. 



-317- 



PAMPHLET NO. 11 



JUNE 1968 



years, nor had they attempted to find out whether the Lethbridge plan had had 
adverse effects which they feared would result in their areas. 

The Town of Empress was concerned over a possibility that the interline carrier 
now serving them might discontinue its operations leaving them with no delivery service 
at all. The Railway outlined the improvements it had inaugurated with the interline 
carrier, which included door-to-door pick up and delivery, and gave its assurance that 
service would be given, even to the extent of arranging for an alternative carrier should 
the incumbent decide to withdraw from Empress. 

Empress also expressed concern over the length of the routes assigned to mobile 
representatives in that area, taking into account road conditions, particularly in adverse 
weather periods of the year. Again the Railway gave its assurance that it would maintain 
sufficient flexibility in this field of customer contact to guarantee good and proper 
coverage of the towns and villages throughout the whole Medicine Hat Division. 

In East Coulee, at present there is a joint CP. - C.N. agency, manned by an agent 
employed by the Canadian Pacific, but part of whose salary is paid by the Canadian 
National. There is in existence an agreement whereby Canadian Pacific does the switching 
at that point for one year and Canadian National does the switching the next year. This 
service is alternated each year. Under the Railway's proposal, the agent at East Coulee 
would be removed and would be replaced by an operator, employed and paid in the same 
manner as the incumbent agent is now. Charter Coals Limited, the largest shipper at this 
point, registered strong opposition to the proposal, due to concern that their switching 
services, shipping arrangements, and ordering of cars would suffer should the services of 
the agent be taken away. On the second day of the hearing, the Railway was able to offer 
the assurance to Charter Coals Limited that the proposal would result in no changes in 
services offered to them at present, except that with the inauguration of the Customer 
Service Centre, all billing and accounting now being done by the agent would be 
performed in the central office at Medicine Hat. Upon receipt of this assurance, Charter 
Coals Limited withdrew its opposition. 

The Alberta Freight Bureau submitted a brief at the hearing which, while not 
objecting to the principle of a Customer Service Plan, drew the attention of the 
Committee to the fact that the Drumheller-East Coulee area is more geographically 
oriented to the Calgary area and should be included in the Customer Service Centre for 
that area. 

The brief further stressed the point that the Zenith telephone service, being basic to 
the provision of service under the proposal, should be maintained with the other 
standards of service until such time as the Committee directs otherwise. 

In reply to this brief, the Railway was able to show that the inclusion of the 
Drumheller area in the Medicine Hat Customer Service Centre would cause no difficulty 
in providing essential services to customers, and further assured the Committee that the 
Zenith telephone would remain an integral part of the plan as long as it remained in 

58 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 1 1 



JUNE 1968 



effect, or until more effective means of communication were developed that met with the 
approval of the Committee. 

Discussions and Conclusions: 

Considering the area to be affected by the Customer Service Plan as proposed by 
the Railway on the Medicine Hat Division and that the above constituted the opposition 
registered at the hearing, the Committee has concluded that the team of officers sent into 
the area by the Railway was successful in informing and educating its customers 
concerning the changes that the proposed plan would bring about, and in allaying most of 
the fears that seem to be inherent in accepting such changes. 

Having come to tins conclusion, and upon weighing the evidence that the proposed 
Customer Service Centre Plan on the Medicine Hat Division is essentially the same as 
other plans which the Committee has earlier approved, I would grant the application of 
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. 

Of continuing concern to me is the role played by the Mobile Representatives in the 
proposed Plan, particularly in the territories allotted to them, the miles to be travelled 
each day and the number of contacts to be made to ensure good and adequate service to 
all customers. I would remind the Railway of its assurance to the Committee, and in this 
case to the Town of Empress, that this portion of the proposed Plan will be kept under 
continuing review, to ensure adequate service to the users of the Railway's facilities. 

I would grant the application of Canadian Pacific Railway Company to remove 41 
agents and 15 caretakers on its Medicine Hat Division, and to substitute therefor the 
Customer Service Centre Plan comprised in the application, as amplified at the hearing in 
Medicine Hat. 

An Order will issue accordingly.

RAILWAY TRANSPORT COMMITTEE 
JUDGMENT 

WOODARD, C. 

The application from the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (hereinafter referred 
to as the "Railway") to remove agents on its Calgary Division, co-incidental with the 
inauguration of a Customer Service Centre at Calgary (Alyth), is dated June 22, 1967. At 
the same time the railway furnished copies of its applications to all the municipalities 
concerned, Members of Parliament and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta 
in the area affected. With the application furnished to the above was advice that any 
submissions, either supporting or opposing the proposed plan, should be sent to the 
Secretary of the Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada, Ottawa, and a request 
that copies of any such submissions be sent to the Railway. By letter dated August 1, 
1967 the Railway advised it wished to amend its application of June 22nd, 1967 to 
provide for the removal of the agent at Red Deer, Alberta. A copy of this letter was sent 
to all those who received a copy of the application. 

During the ensuing months many submissions were received by the Board, showing 
either opposition to the proposed plan, or registering no objection to the plan as 
submitted. In the fall of 1967, the District Inspector at Calgary was directed by this 
Committee to conduct a thorough review, by way of interviewing officials of 
municipalities, towns, villages and hamlets as well as businessmen and members of various 
organizations to determine the effect the proposed plan would have on users of the 
Railway services. Following this review, the Inspector reported his findings to the 
Committee. 

On January 8, 1968, the Railway, for the purpose of disseminating information to 
their customers regarding the proposed plan, sent a team of officers into the area to meet 
with the people. Nineteen meetings were held at various locations during which 161 
persons were contacted representing municipal, business and other organizations. 

On June 29, 1967, the Railway mailed 259 letters to patrons and shippers on the 
Calgary Division explaining its Customer Service Centre proposal. 

On January 26, 1968, the Railway Transport Committee sent out to all interested 
parties shown on its files and to any others who had received copies of the Railway's 
application, notice that a public hearing would be held on Tuesday, March 12, 1968 in 
Court Room No. 2, of the Court House, Calgary, Alberta. 

Description of Proposed Customer Service Centre 

The Centre proposed by the Railway on the Calgary Division is identical with 
similar plans being inaugurated on the Trenton Division and in South Edmonton, and 
proposed for the Regina Division, i.e., a Customer Service Centre to which all patrons of 

58 R.T.C. 



-324 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 12 



JUNE 1968 



the Railway can communicate by means of a toll-free Zenith telephone number. The 
switchboard at the centre would be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and would 
place with various experts in their field, calls to rate matters, the ordering or placing of 
cars, information concerning shipments, telegraph messages, train or hotel reservations, 
etc. All waybilling and other types of accounting, rather than being done by station 
agents as at present, would be done by staff in the centre. 

All less-than-carload freight and express is being transported by truck on the 
Calgary Division and will continue to be handled in this manner. However, the billing and 
collecting will now be done in the Customer Service Centre, and rather than the station 
being the drop-off point for shipments for delivery, the trucking service, whether 
Canadian Pacific Merchandise Service, contract carrier, or interline carrier, will provide its 
own facilities. 

To serve as contact men between the Railway and its customers, it is proposed that 
2 mobile representatives who would be domiciled in Calgary would be appointed to serve 
the area. Each would travel specific routes by automobile each day, contacting customers, 
adjusting complaints, and, in short seeing that his customers receive adequate service for 
merchandise or carload traffic, or for any other of the railway services. It is estimated 
that each of these representatives would be required to travel an average of 190 miles a 
day in addition to his contact work. The Railway is confident that this amount of road 
mileage is not excessive but indicated in evidence that should it be found that the mobile 
representatives could not cover the routes, steps would be taken to add to the number in 
the area. 

Opposition to the Application 

As the hearing progressed it became evident that serious doubts existed in the 
minds of those opposed to the plan as to the ability of the Railway to provide a 
reasonable alternative service at points where the proposal contemplates removing the 
resident agent. They were also concerned as to what the probable long term impact would 
be in social and economic terms in the area affected. The doubts and fears generally 
expressed were that: 

(1) The customer would lose the advantages available through personal contact 
with the agent. 

(2) The local representative, who is usually a businessman, could not provide a 
service as satisfactory as an agent in terms of being available 8 hours a day 5 
days a week. 

(3) Insufficient consideration has been given to long term social and economic 
effects on the area and its residents deriving from the centralization involved in 
this plan. 

(4) There is a great deal of concern that the length of the routes assigned to each of 
the mobile representatives is such that they would not be able to give the 
required service to their territory. 

58 R.T.C. 



- 325 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 12 



JUNE 1968 



(5) There is concern as to whether the Railway will be able to obtain interline 
carriers and contract representatives who can render the required service. 

Mr. J.W.P. Telford, Supervisor of the Alberta Freight Bureau of the Province of 
Alberta, testified they studied the Lethbridge Customer Service Centre prior to and after 
its implementation. They found that the plan was working generally as the Railway had 
outlined and when necessary the Railway had made adjustments to suit particular 
circumstances. He stated the Bureau was not opposing the system and that if the standard 
of service does not come up to what is desired or required in a community, the Bureau 
would take the case back to the Railway Transport Committee. 

Discussion and Conclusion 

Of continuing concern to me is the role played by the mobile Representatives in the 
proposed plan, particularly in the territories allotted to them, the miles to be travelled 
each day and the number of contacts to be made to ensure good and adequate service to 
all customers. The Railway's witness Wedman, in cross-examination, stated that after 
these mobile men have had a chance to travel these routes for a couple of months they 
will get to know the patrons and inquiries just as well as the agent who now has very little 
opportunity to get out and contact people. 

While not overlooking the Railway's assurance to the Committee that this feature 
of the proposed plan will be kept under continuing review, to ensure adequate service to 
the users of the Railway's facilities, I nevertheless find myself sharing the fears of those 
opposing the application that the mileage assigned to each of the two mobile 
representatives is such they will be unable to fulfill the Railway's obligations to its 
customers. 

Having come to this conclusion I am of the opinion that the Railway should 
appoint a third mobile representative to be based at a point outside of Calgary which 
might well be at Red Deer, Alberta or such other location as the Railway may determine 
as being in the best interest of serving its customers. 

Upon weighing the evidence that the proposed Customer Service Centre plan on the 
Calgary Division is essentially the same as other plans which the Committee has earlier 
approved, I would grant the application of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company on the 
condition that the Railway undertakes to appoint a third mobile representative whose 
location is determined in the manner I have previously described. 

Upon fulfilling of the stipulation set forth in this Judgment, I would grant the 
application of Canadian Pacific Railway Company to remove 17 agents on its Calgary 
Division, and to substitute therefor the Customer Service Centre plan as comprised in the 
application, and amplified at the Hearing in Calgary. 

An Order will issue accordingly.

JUDGMENT 



WOODARD,C: 

On September 29, 1967, the Canadian National Railways, hereinafter referred to as 
the "Railway 1 ' filed with the Railway Transport Committee of the Canadian Transport 
Commission, an application for leave to discontinue its passenger Trains Nos. 101 and 
102 and the coach service being provided on mixed Trains Nos. 203 and 204, both 
services operating between St. John's and Port aux Basques, in the Province of 
Newfoundland, and the substitution therefor of a highway bus service between the same 
points over the Trans Canada Highway. This application was filed under the provisions of 
Section 314 1 of The Railway Act. 

At the time of filing of the application, regulations for applications of this type, as 
contemplated by Section 314 I, had not been promulgated. The Railway Transport 
Committee, which I will refer to hereafter as the "Committee", issued, under date of 
November 6th, 1967, Order R-507, which set forth regulations applicable only to this 
case, to be complied with by the Railway. On the basis of our analysis of revenue and 
cost data supplied by the Railway, the Committee found, and so declared in its Order 
R-507, that the loss sustained by the Railway in the operation of these trains in the year 
1966, was $918,000, and set the matter down for a hearing in the Department of Labour 
Hearing Room, 5th Floor Confederation Building, St. John's, Newfoundland, to begin at 
10.00 A.M. local time, December 1 1th, 1967. 

At the outset of the hearing, Mr. Esau Thorns, General Chairman, Brotherhood of 
Railway, Airline and Steamship Clerks, Freight Handlers, Express and Station Employ- 
ees, asked the Committee to consider a six-months' suspension of the hearing, on the 
grounds that he had not received a copy of the Railway's application in sufficient time to 
prepare a proper case. After giving due consideration to Mr. Thorns' request, as enlarged 
upon in his argument, we came to the decision that the hearing should continue.

PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



Description of Railway Line and Present Passenger Services: 

Under the Terms of Union of Newfoundland with Canada, as approved by Chapter 
1 of the Statutes of Canada, 1949, and by virtue of Order in Council P.C. 1454, dated 
April 1st, 1949, the Newfoundland Railway System was entrusted to Canadian National 
for management and operation. The said railway system was (and still is) a narrow gauge 
railway (three feet, six-inch gauge), with many steep grades and severe curves along the 
547 miles which make up the main line between St. John's and Port aux Basques. 

Evidence was adduced by the Railway that, since Confederation, it had spent 30 
million dollars on main line capital improvements, including such items as large-scale rail 
and tie renewals, bridge strengthening, ballasting, etc. No attempt had been made to 
improve the right of way by elimination of curves or grades, or by conversion to standard 
gauge, as studies had proven that the cost of such projects would be prohibitive. These 
studies estimated a cost of 225 million dollars to convert to standard gauge and re-align 
the more severe curves and grades., and a cost of 140 million dollars for re-alignment and 
grading, while still maintaining the narrow gauge. 

It was also stated that since 1949, the Railway had purchased 48 pieces of 
passenger equipment at a cost of 4 million dollars, and also upgraded some 16 units of 
steel equipment from the pre-Confederation fleet, and also completely dieselized both 
freight and passenger services. None of the coaches, sleepers or diners, are air-conditioned, 
and because of the narrow gauge track and curvature, are of necessity, built on a smaller 
scale than is the standard equipment used on the mainland. 

The curvature and grades on the line also have a bearing on the time required for 
Trains 101 and 102 to make the journey between St. John's and Port aux Basques, and 
still make the stops necessary for the handling of local traffic. Train 101, from St. John's 
to Port aux Basques, requires 21 hours and 35 minutes to complete the 547-mile trip, 
while Train 102 in the reverse direction requires 22 hours. The mixed trains, Nos. 203 
and 204, require approximately 30 hours in each direction. 

The normal consist of Trains 101 and 102 is two diesel units, a steam generator car, 
baggage car, lounge car, three coaches, one dining car, two sleepers and a sleeping car for 
the diner crew. Should business warrant, additional coaches and sleepers are added. The 
current schedules provide for three trips per week in each direction although during the 
summer months this service is augmented to a daily service to accommodate heavier 
traffic. Trains 203 and 204 handle only two coaches on the rear of a freight train and 
operate only one day a week in each direction September 24 to December 31, two days a 
week January 1 to June 4, and no service June 5 to September 23. 

It was the evidence of the Railway that passenger carryings had fallen off gradually 
since 1960, and that there had been a very great drop since 1965. The year 1965 marked 
the completion of the Trans Canada Highway. 

The completion of the highway link between Port aux Basques and St. John's 
resulted in a very noticeable shift from rail travel to travel by private automobile, and in 

58 R.T.C.

PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



an attempt to re-attract this passenger business, and to better serve passengers who 
continue to use commercial transport, the Railway had decided to apply to the 
Committee for permission to discontinue its slow conventional rail passenger service and 
substitute therefor a fast comfortable bus service operating over the highway. 

Description of Proposed Bus Service: 

It is the Railway's intention, should the application be granted, to purchase a total 
fleet of 16 buses, 1 1 of which would handle summer operations and 10 of which would 
handle the winter operations. The balance of the fleet would be used for standby or 
overflow service. 

Each bus would seat 39 passengers, be airconditioned and equipped with a lavatory, 
and the operator would have at his station a mobile radio-telephone with which he could 
contact strategically-located dispatchers in the event of breakdown or delays. Each bus 
would have approximately 200 cubic feet of space for hand luggage. 

The bus schedules would consist of daily express runs over the full distance 
between Port aux Basques and St. John's in both directions, local runs over the same area, 
and intermediate local runs between specific points. The proposed express schedule over 
the whole route would entail travelling time of about 13 hours and 15 minutes and the 
local schedule would take about 15 hours and 25 minutes. For ready reference I 
reproduce hereunder the proposed summer and winter schedules as contained in Exhibit 
9, filed by the Railway.

PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



The Railway intends to apply the same Red White and Blue fare system on its buses 
as is now in effect on the railway service, and would in addition, inaugurate a no-charge 
reservation system which would allow a check on passenger requirements. Main bus 
terminals would be set up in the existing passenger terminals at St. John's and Port aux 
Basques, and where possible, existing railway stations would be used as intermediate 
terminals. Where this is not possible, due to their distance from the highway, 
arrangements would be made to use service stations, hotels or restaurants as bus stops 
along the route. It is the intention to make available to the travelling public at most 
boarding points, information as to the on-time performance of the buses, delays, etc. 

Originally, and as outlined at the hearing the Railway felt that it would be 
necessary to set up shelters at 1 4 locations where other facilities are not available. After a 
later review in January 1968, the Railway advised the Committee that a number of 
required shelters could be eliminated by the use of other facilities such as existing railway 
stations, tours village accommodation, restaurants or service stations. This proposal would 
result in a maximum of five shelters being required, which would be heated and lighted, 
with a caretaker in charge to keep them clean and to provide snow clearing when 
necessary. 

The Trans Canada Highway follows the railway line very closely throughout the 
whole route with the exception of a portion between the villages of Badger and Deer 
Lake. Because communities in this area would be virtually isolated from passenger service, 
should a bus operation be introduced, the Railway proposes to operate a daily coach 
service on its express train between Bishop's Falls and Corner Brook in both directions, 
which would give residents of the area a rail link with the bus operation. In addition, to 
dispel the fears of the people of Newfoundland arising out of the belief that a bus 
operation cannot be run successfully in the winter months the Railway proposes to 
operate a coach service on Trains 203 and 204, two trips a week in each direction over 
the whole line, between December 1968 and May 1, 1969, said service to be discontinued 
on May 1, 1969. 

It would not be the intention of the Railway to set up any type of feeder services 
to the proposed bus operation. In its opinion such feeder services now exist in the form 
of local bus and taxi operations in most communities that are to be served, augmenting 
the use of the private automobile. 

Opposition to the Application: 

The position of the Province of Newfoundland, as stated by the Honourable T. A. 
Hickman, Q.C., Minister of Justice, Province of Newfoundland, was to the effect that any 
alternative service inaugurated by the Railway should be one that would properly 
discharge its responsibilities, or those of Canada, to the people of Newfoundland, as 
contemplated by the Terms of Confederation of 1949. Mr. Hickman stated that a trial 
period should be considered to prove that a bus service could be, not only equal, but 
superior to the present train service. It was his suggestion that between the time of 

58 R.T.C. 



- 365 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



inauguration of the bus service and the fall of 1970, the Railway should maintain at the 
same time a scheduled train-passenger service. This, in his opinion, would afford the 
opportunity to gain the required information and experience related to a regularly 
scheduled trans-Island bus service, to determine its worth in comparison to a rail 
operation, and the extent of its acceptability by the travelling public. In short, the 
Province of Newfoundland feels that it should not be required to accept a "Pig in a 
Poke", to use Mr. Hickman's expression, but would be prepared to accept an alternative 
to the present rail passenger service once it had proven to be properly operable in all 
seasons of the year. 

Mr. Richard Cashin, Member of Parliament for St. John's West, and representing the 
Members of Parliament from Newfoundland, was of the same view as Mr. Hickman that 
the responsibility rests with the Railway to demonstrate by experience, rather than in 
opinion, that a bus service is workable and a definite improvement over the existing 
passenger train service. He thought this could only be accomplished by operating the two 
services concurrently until sufficient time had elapsed to prove the merits of one over the 
other and the public acceptance of the new service. Mr. Cashin was also of the opinion 
that the Railway should conduct studies into the feasibility of a Dayliner or R.D.C. 
operation rather than the proposed bus operation. 

In response to a request from the Committee, the Railway has since furnished 
information as to the revenues and costs that would accrue should a Railiner operation be 
instituted. 

Having assessed this information, it appears that the large capital outlay required 
for the purchase of rail diesel cars would, of itself, ensure substantial annual losses for this 
service, that the prospective patronage of the service would be considerably smaller than 
the prospective patronage of the proposed bus service and that fewer places and a smaller 
population would have immediate access to such rail passenger service than to the 
proposed bus service. 

The Committee is therefore unable to accept the suggestion of Mr. Cashin that the 
substitution of R.D.C. operation might be preferable to the proposed bus service. 

Evidence was adduced by the Railway that 129 full-time employees would be 
affected, should the application be granted. Tins effect on employees was strongly 
attacked by Mr. Thorns and by other Railway Labour leaders at the hearing. The 
breakdown of employees was 65 equipment department, 38 sleeping and dining car 
department, 24 running trades and 2 stores department employees. These employees only 
hold seniority on the Newfoundland Area of the Canadian National, and although some 
employees affected may be able to retain employment by the exercise of seniority, it still 
results in 129 Railway employees being forced out of work either directly or indirectly 
due to the passenger train discontinuance. The Railway answered the strong protests of 
the Unions by stating that the company policy of preference of employment, on-the-job 
training, and normal attrition due to deaths and retirements would help to a considerable 
degree in alleviating the effect of the passenger train discontinuance. In addition, it was 

58 R.T.C. 



- 366 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



pointed but that a recent Railway-Union job security benefit plan would benefit some 
employees in the non-operating groups. This agreement takes the form of supplemental 
unemployment insurance payments, severance pay, relocation allowances, retraining and 
such other measures as may be appropriate in particular circumstances. These benefits 
would be available in some degree to 105 of the 129 employees. 

It is estimated that the bus service would create 57 positions and it is the Railway's 
hope that most of these positions could be properly filled from its existing labour pool, 
not necessarily from the employees affected by the change, but at least from the Railway, 
leaving these employees' former positions available to some of those displaced by the 
discontinuance of the rail service. 

While no evidence or vocal opposition was introduced by the municipalities and 
towns along the line, there are on file with the Committee, a large number of briefs which 
had been received prior to, and during hearing. As the general tenor of the briefs is similar 
to the opposition raised at the hearing, I will not deal with them separately, other than to 
say that they have been considered, and add considerable weight to the oral opposition 
presented at the hearing. To sum up in a few words the feeling expressed in these briefs, it 
would seem to be, "Do not treat us, the people of Newfoundland, as second-class citizens 
of Canada, by forcing upon us a second-class system of passenger service. We, as the 
youngest Province in the Confederation, are entitled to treatment equal to that given to 
the other provinces." 

Summary: 

Having heard the evidence given both in support of, and in opposition to the 
Railway's application, and having given consideration to it and to the contents of briefs 
filed with the Committee, we must now come to a decision which we feel is fair and just. 

The Railway, on the one hand, is at present operating a passenger service which is 
showing a continuing decline in patronage. This decline is due partly to competition from 
other forms of travel, and partly to the inescapable fact that the railway plant does not 
lend itself, without the expenditure of huge sums of money, to better schedules and other 
amenities that might bring back the patronage that the service once enjoyed when it was a 
virtual monopoly. 

In an attempt to regain the passenger business the Railway is prepared to enter a 
new field of passenger service, a highway bus operation, to replace the existing railway 
passenger service. For this bus operation, it intends to purchase and utilize a fleet of 
modern airconditioned buses, combining the ultimate in highway coach travel with 
greatly accelerated schedules and more frequent express and local services to serve the 
needs of the travelling public. 

On the other hand, those in opposition to the Railway's proposal expressed very 
strong doubts that a highway bus operation could be maintained under the extreme 
weather conditions that are experienced in Newfoundland during some periods of the 

58 R.T.C. 



367 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



year. While admitting that interruptions in rail service occurred during times of fog or 
winter storms, they were of the opinion that such conditions would have an even more 
serious effect on highway bus schedules. It was for this reason that they advocated a trial 
period of bus operation prior to any discontinuance of the existing rail service. 

The second major point raised in opposition was the effect that the change from 
rail to bus passenger service would have on the railway personnel employed in the 
operation of the present service. One hundred and twenty-nine employees will be 
affected, either directly or indirectly, and this, in the opinion of those opposed, is a 
matter of public interest which should be considered by the Committee. This opinion was 
reiterated and supported by Members of the House of Assembly in final argument and in 
a large number of briefs on file from municipalities, Boards of Trade, Chambers of 
Commerce, and other interested parties. 

Conclusions: 

I have reached the conclusion that the Railway should be given some form of relief 
from its present situation, that is, the operation of a passenger service which is the best 
rail service possible, considering the condition of the existing rail plant, but which, for 
various reasons is showing a continuing decline in patronage and has shown a loss of over 
$900,000 in the year 1966. 

The institution of a highway bus service would, in our opinion, reduce this loss by a 
considerable amount, while at the same time providing more convenient, faster schedules 
for the travelling public, and perhaps providing the Railway with a means of regaining the 
patronage it has lost over the past years. 

We are aware of the effect this move will have on railway employees. However, we 
feel confident that the recent Railway-Union Agreements covering technological and 
organizational changes will be of considerable benefit in softening the impact of a change 
such as the one here proposed. We feel that the new service proposed by the Railway 
would be an improvement over the existing service and therefore of benefit to all the 
people of Newfoundland, even though it would have unfortunate effects on the jobs of 
some railway personnel. 

We also share the concern of the people of Newfoundland as to whether the service 
as here proposed will be as efficient as is expected in all the extremes of weather 
experienced in the Province. Until the service has proven itself to be efficient, we feel that 
the decision of this Committee should provide for safeguards to protect the travelling 
public from the possibility of any breakdown in passenger service. 

I would accordingly grant the application of the Canadian National to discontinue 
the railway passenger services provided by Trains 101 and 102 and coach service provided 
on mixed Trains Nos. 203 and 204, and to substitute therefor a bus service over the Trans 
Canada Highway between St. John's and Port aux Basques, on schedules comparable to 
those suggested in their presentation to the Committee. In my opinion, the granting of 

58 R.T.C.

the application must be subject to the conditions set forth in the reasons for Judgment of 
the Chairman of the Committee, and may only take effect as and when he has directed.

JONES, Chairman: 

When these proceedings opened at St. John's, Newfoundland, on December 11, 
1967, Honourable J. W. Pickersgill, P.C., President, Canadian Transport Commission, was 
present. After his opening statement which set this case in the context of the principles 
embodied in the National Transportation Act, Statutes of Canada, 1967, chap. 69, 
particularly those in the new section 314 I of the Railway Act, R.S.C. 1952, chap. 234, 
he withdrew for the reasons expressed by him at the time and I presided over the hearing. 

The facts with which the Railway Transport Committee is concerned in this case 
are fully set forth in the Judgment of Woodard, C. I agree with his statement of the facts 
and they need not be repeated here. 

However, there are two issues on which 1 wish to dwell that are central to the 
decision in this case. 

When Newfoundland entered Confederation in 1949, one of the Terms of Union 
agreed upon by Canada and Newfoundland was Term 31(a) contained in Appendix "A" 
to Statutes of Canada, 1949, chap. 1 : 

"At the date of Union, or as soon thereafter as practicable, Canada will take 
over the following services and will, as from the date of Union, relieve the Province 
of Newfoundland of the public costs incurred in respect of every service taken over, 
namely, . . . 

(a) the Newfoundland Railway ..." 

On April 1, 1949, by Order in Council P.C. 1454, the Governor General in Council 
entrusted to Canadian National Railways the operation and management of the 
Newfoundland Railway. The operative words of that Order in Council as it relates to this 
case are: 

. . Therefore, His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the 
recommendation of the Minister of Transport, is pleased to order that, effective 
April 1, 1949, the Newfoundland Railway, including rights-of-way, wharves, dry 
docks and other real property, rolling stock, equipment, ships and other personal 
property ... the title to which is vested in His Majesty, be and they are hereby 
entrusted in respect of management and operation thereof to the Company on the 
terms in the Canadian National Railways' Act expressly specified, namely, that such 
management and operation shall continue during the pleasure of the Governor in 
Council. ..." 

When Canada took over the Newfoundland Railway and when operation and 
management was entrusted to Canadian National Railways, there was in existence 
between Port aux Basques and St. John's a train service for the transportation of 
passengers which until the completion of the Trans Canada Highway was the only reliable 
overland method by which people could travel between those and intermediate points 
located on the railway. 

58 R.T.C. 



- 370- 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



What is proposed by Canadian National Railways involves the virtual elimination of 
transportation of passengers by rail on the main line in the Province and substitution by 
Canadian National of public passenger transport service by road, based on the 
presumption that public passenger transport should be provided so long as there is a 
substantial demand for such service. 

As I have stated, the only reliable means of overland travel in 1949 was by the 
Newfoundland Railway and, in interpreting the effect of the entrustment of that 
Railway to Canadian National, pursuant to the Terms of Union, I feel we should give 
effect to one of the cardinal principles of interpretation of Canadian constitutional 
documents, giving to their provisions a large and liberal interpretation to impart to them 
the flexibility that changing or unforeseen circumstances may require. 

There was no Trans Canada Highway in Newfoundland in 1949 but that fact does 
not relieve this Committee, in its consideration of the present application, of its duty to 
relate the proposed discontinuance of the passenger train service to the presumption that 
public transportation service for passengers between St. John's, Port aux Basques and 
intermediate points should be assured so long as it is required by public convenience and 
necessity. 

It is true that the application for discontinuance is accompanied by the proposal to 
substitute a bus service which would continue to provide such passenger service through 
the instrumentality of Canadian National. We were not told in precise terms the reasons 
for the bus service proposal accompanying the application for discontinuance but we are 
entitled to assume that this was probably done in recognition of the presumption just 
referred to. 

In the result, the Committee is of opinion that it must deal with this application in 
accordance with the criteria established by section 314 I of the Railway Act. 

Subsection (5) of section 314 I of the Railway Act requires the Canadian Transport 
Commission to have regard". . . to all matters thai: to it appear relevant . . and to 
determine ". . .whether the passenger train service is uneconomic and is likely to 
continue to be uneconomic and whether the passenger train service should be 
discontinued." 

As a condition precedent to the making of such determination, the Commission 
must first find that the Applicant has incurred "actual loss" in the operation of the 
passenger train service in question. By Order No. R-507, the Committee found there to 
have been actual loss in 1966 of $918,000. 

When the Commission is deciding whether an uneconomic passenger train service is 
to be discontinued, it is required to have regard to the criteria contained in subsection (6) 
of section 3141. This subsection is important and is set out fully below: 

"(6) In determining whether an uneconomic passenger-train service or parts 
thereof should be discontinued, the Commission shall consider all matters that in its 



58 R.T.C. 



371 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



opinion are relevant to the public interest including, without limiting the generality 
of the foregoing. 

(a) the actual losses that are incurred in the operation of the passenger-grain 
service ; 

(b) the alternative transportation services, including any highway or highway 
system serving the principal points served by the passenger-train service, 
that are available or are likely to be available in the area served by the 

service ; 

(c) the probable effect on other passenger-train service or other passenger 
carriers of the discontinuance of the service, or of parts thereof; and 

(d) the probable future passenger transportation needs of the area served by 
the service." 

It should be said in passing that the statutory provisions mentioned refer to the 
Canadian Transport Commission, but its function in this case is being carried out by the 
Railway Transport Committee of the Commission, pursuant to subsection (3) of section 
17 of the National Transportation Act, and the General Rules made by the Commission 
pursuant thereto. 

The Committee in reaching its conclusions has considered all the matters referred to 
in subsection (6) of section 314 I of the Railway Act, including the actual loss of 
$918,000 for the year 1966, as well as all the other evidence placed before it in these 
proceedings. 

The evidence is that while there is in existence today a modern". . . highway or 
highway system serving the principal points served by the passenger train service ..." 
there are no adequate public facilities for the transportation of passengers over that 
highway or highway system. 

Because of this fact and the requirement of a public service for the transport of 
passengers to meet the public convenience and necessity, we hold that the passenger train 
service which is the subject of this application cannot be discontinued without the 
substitution therefor of a bus service at least as good as, if not better than the present 
passenger train service. 

Because the Province of Newfoundland is unique in all of Canada in that apart from 
Canadian National there are no other passenger train services or passenger carriers of 
comparable scope, we have found it unnecessary to apply the provisions of paragraph (c) 
of subsection (6) of section 314 I of the Railway Act. 

There is strong evidence before us that the people of Newfoundland need a modern, 
speedy and reliable public means of passenger transportation, and no evidence that this 
need will be in any way diminished in the future. 

Accordingly, on the basis of all the evidence before us, we find and declare that the 
passenger train service which is the subject of this application is uneconomic and should 

58 R.T.C. 



- 372 - 



PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



be discontinued by Canadian National Railways and replaced by the proposed bus service 
but only on the date and upon performance of the conditions hereinafter set forth. 

Much evidence was introduced at the hearing concerning the bus service to be 
inaugurated and operated by Canadian National Railways as a substitute for the present 
passenger train service. Witnesses appearing on behalf of Canadian National were strongly 
of the opinion that this service when in operation would find favour with the travelling 
public in Newfoundland because, to mention only a few of the reasons given, it would be 
more comfortable, it would be faster and it would be more modern. Canadian National is 
convinced, and its witnesses so stated, that the rugged terrain of the Province and the 
extremes of weather to which it is subject would not create any greater difficulties in 
operation than has the railway over the years since Canadian National undertook its 
operation and management. 

The Committee had an opportunity to inspect a prototype bus at St. John's in 
December and, unquestionably, these vehicles will be clean, modern, comfortable and 
fast. However, the Committee is deeply concerned to ensure that Canadian National will 
be able to provide the highway service on a year-round basis in the face of weather 
conditions with which anyone who lives in Newfoundland is familiar. Canadian National 
has not operated a bus line in Canada at all comparable to what is proposed in 
Newfoundland and this would inevitably mean that there will be many problems to be 
solved in operating and maintaining schedules. Canadian National is very optimistic about 
its ability to operate the proposed bus service all the year round. But, not unnaturally, 
those who appeared in opposition wanted more than the opinions expressed by 
representatives of Canadian National at the hearing as assurance of its ability to perform 
the service. The Committee has given very serious consideration to the claims of Canadian 
National and the fears expressed by those opposed and has concluded that, as one 
condition of the discontinuance of the passenger train service, there must be what is in 
effect a trial period. 

Another important aspect of this application involves the shelters which Canadian 
National proposes to provide for passengers getting on or getting off busses at the two 
terminal points of St. John's and Port aux Basques as well as at intermediate stops 
between those points. 

The evidence before us is that the present passenger railway stations at St. John's 
and Port aux Basques as well as at certain other points, will be converted for use by bus 
passengers and that, where required, heated, all-weather shelters will be constructed and 
will be equipped with satisfactory communication links, so that passengers may know the 
times of arrival and departure of busses and when busses have undergone breakdowns or 
delay. 

For the reasons given above, and those of Woodard, C, an Order will issue directing 
the discontinuance of the passenger train service comprised in this Application, effective 
April 15, 1969, provided Canadian National Railways has met the following conditions:

PAMPHLET NO. 14 



JULY 1968 



L The bus service proposed by Canadian National and described in detail in the 
Judgment of Woodard, C, shall be inaugurated and continued as long as a requirement 
for passenger service continues, and the passenger facilities, including terminals and 
the shelters mentioned above, with proper communication links, shall be provided and 
installed, all to the satisfaction of the Committee. 

2. Until Canadian National is notified by the Committee that the bus service is 
inaugurated and the passenger facilities are provided and installed to the satisfaction of 
the Committee, the passenger train service shall continue to be operated in the same 
manner and as frequently as it was during the comparable period in 1967. 

3. From the date Canadian National is notified that the Committee is satisfied that the 
bus service is inaugurated and the passenger facilities provided and installed, until 
April 15, 1969, the passenger train service shall continue to be operated in 
emergencies created by extremes of weather or by any other cause, until full bus 
service is restored. To meet the requirements of this condition, Canadian National 
shall keep and maintain ready for operation such passenger train equipment as the 
Committee shall direct. 

4. Canadian National will be required to operate a daily coach service in both directions 
on its express trains, between Bishop's Falls and Corner Brook, to provide a rail link 
with the bus service for residents in the area between Badger and Deer Lake. 

5. If, prior to April 15, 1969, Canadian National Railways fails or is unable to perform 
any of the conditions enumerated above, or if at any time before that date the 
Committee is not satisfied that the bus service is at least as good as the present 
passenger train service, it may, upon notice to Canadian National and to all parties who 
appeared before it in December 1967, reconvene the hearing to consider whether in 
the exercise of its general powers under the Railway Act, it should impose further 
conditions to be met prior to the discontinuance of the passenger train service or 
direct the adoption of such measures as may be necessary to ensure the adequacy of 
the bus service.
